Econyl - Material from Re-Cycled Plastic Waste (JLR)

Post by DaveBerlin » Sat Oct 03, 2020 4:23 pm

I Recently posted some articles on the use of Materials from Re-Cycled Plastic Bottles that Volvo and Nissan were using.
It now looks like JLR are planning to use materials from Econyl (Re-Cycled Plastic Waste) from the Co. Aquafina in Italy for Interior Mats & Trims - Dave 😊

The use of Re-Cycled & New Mixes of Materials seems to be being assessed more and more in the Motor Industry & Motor Sport Activities - Dave 🙂✅
“This Porsche will be fitted with a natural-fibre composite material body kit and powered by a 3.8-litre flat-six engine producing 313 kW (425 PS), the 718 Cayman GT4 MR for the Nürburgring 24-hour race Since early 2019, Porsche manufactured the two doors and the rear wing of the small series racing vehicle out of a natural-fibre mix, sourced primarily from renewable raw materials. Now for the first time, the front and rear aprons, the front spoiler, front and rear lids as well as the mudguards and diffuser including the aerodynamic fins are also made of this regenerative material.”
