Interior in recycled materials for Volvo

Volvo as unveiled a specially-built version of its hybrid SUV that looks identical to the existing model, but has had several of its plastic components replaced with equivalents containing recycled materials. The interior has a tunnel console made from renewable fibres and recycled plastics from discarded fishing nets and maritime ropes. On the floor, the carpet contains fibres made of recycled PET plastic bottles and a recycled cotton mix from clothing manufacturers’ offcuts. The seats also use recycled PET fibres. Used car seats from old Volvo cars were used to create the sound-absorbing material under the car bonnet.
