A Scottish company made this finding by the cooperation of another two scientists with its cofounders. They aimed to find a material that can be equal even better than carbon fiber in strength and viscosity, which can be hardly achieved by one material at the same time. Finally they found one and it’s Curran, meaning carrot in Gaelic. Existing widely in root vegetables and being found easily in shops are the main reason that it was the first material applied in the experiment.

When Curran is added to other products for better strength, stronger viscosity will be also increased as a affiliate effect. Curran was tested for the comprehensive performance for strength,
And the result is that it’s one time stronger than carbon fiber, and can be used as the plane wine material. That’s a great finding and the material industry may be changed in the near future as Curran is much more environmental-friendly and accessible than many other material for same applications.

Globally, about one fifth sugar is from beet root. Thus beet root would be a more perfect raw material for Curran though there are other alternatives like wood. Besides, the fast growth speed and harmless character to environment are another two advantages of beet root.
