Turkmenistan looks to build basalt fibre production plants

Basalt fibre production plants: Turkmenistan is looking at the possibility of building two plants dedicated to the production of continuous basalt fibre after an evaluation of its reserves. Similar to carbon fibre but significantly cheaper, basalt fibre is used as a fireproof textile in the aerospace and automotive industries and can also be deployed as a composite in products such as camera tripods.
