Honda May Roll Out Bio-Fabric Interiors

| Tuesday August 22nd, 2006 | 0 Comments

carseat.jpgJFS reports today that Honda has developed a plant-based “bio fabric” that can be used to cover car seats and other interior elements. The product is derived mostly from corn and is said to cost 10-15% less to produce in terms of energy with even more significant reductions in CO2 emissions as the plants it comes from would sequester a certain amount of CO2 during their growth. Finally, the material is supposed to be just as soft and durable as the petrol-based plastics we’ve gotten so used to.
