The BIOMOTIVE project, which kicked off in June, will explore the possibilities to replace non-biodegradable interior parts on vehicles with its biobased equivalent. The project, coordinated by Selena Labs and co-funded by the European Union, aims to pave the ground towards the fabrication of innovative and advanced biobased materials from renewable biomass feedstock, leveraging innovative production techniques. Such materials aim to mimic the technical properties of polyurethanes – for instance, reducing weight but ensuring strength and flexibility- that are increasingly attractive to the vehicles industry.
To ensure the interest of the project activities, UITP is in charge of an external stakeholders group, involving players operating in sectors that are crucial to the project.
