Caption: Carbon fibre production. An employee examines carbon fibre in a factory. Carbon fibre is composed almost entirely of carbon and is made by the heat treatment of a special type of acrylic thread, rayon or petroleum pitch. It has four times the strength of an equivalent weight of steel and is widely used to reinforce plastics in aircraft, cars and sports equipment. Photographed at the Alabuga-Volokno plant in Yelabuga, Russia.
