The aim is to cater to the automobile sector’s demand for lighter, comfortable and sustainable materials for use in vehicle production. The project exchanges, combines and tests in an innovative way a variety of materials, processes, techniques and combinations. The result is a demonstrator that signifies a 20% reduction in the weight of a normal car door. Reducing the weight of a vehicle leads to lower fuel consumption and a lower CO2 emission.
