Bioconcept-Car: Sustainable lightweight bodywork as a building block for climate-neutral mobility
Together with HOBUM Oleochemicals, Porsche Motorsport and the Four Motors racing team, we are developing lightweight components made from natural fiber-reinforced plastics for vehicle bodies. They are a sustainable, cost-neutral alternative to conventional body materials and offer technical advantages. We initially test their performance in motorsports under extreme conditions. With the obtained knowledge, we conceptualize a potential material solution for series-production utilization in road traffic. We are thereby supporting the European Union's aim of becoming climate-neutral by 2050.
