IACMI-member IsoTruss, Inc., an engineering, design, and manufacturing services provider, today announced its IsoTruss® Carbon Fiber Tower has been named winner of the 2023 Global Innovation Award by JEC Composites in the Equipment, Machinery & Heavy Industries category.
Nathan D. Rich, Founder and CEO, IsoTruss, Inc., said, “We are honored to receive the 2023 Innovation Award from JEC Composites for our IsoTruss® carbon fiber tower. I’m grateful to our entire team for its hard work and dedication as we pioneer a new chapter in sustainability. We value and appreciate the validation IsoTruss has received not only from JEC, but from our customers, clients, partners, and investors around the world as we implement our mission to build for tomorrow with sustainable, durable solutions in infrastructure and construction.”
IsoTruss® carbon fiber towers reduce material usage by twelve times on a weight basis, resulting in 70% reduction in carbon emissions over the life of the tower. IsoTruss® tower solutions are well-suited to high wind, snow and ice environments in mountain settings and hurricane/typhoon-prone regions. This is mostly due to the corrosion-resistance of the composite material and the superior wind resistance of the IsoTruss® lattice geometry, which extends product lifetimes by five times over steel solutions.
Each year, the JEC Composites Innovation Awards celebrate successful projects and cooperation between players of the composites industry. These composites champions are awarded based on multiple criteria such as partner involvement in the value chain, complexity or commercial potential of the project.
