Renault, circular materials for new electric model

The automotive company Renault reproposes its electric vehicle redesigned Zoe. The car’s interior is made of recycled and circular materials.

The internal textile coverings are obtained from a yarn made from safety belt scrap and PET waste materials.

Renault used the traditional process of carded yarn manufacturing, which creates a quality material without melting or chemical transformation.

This constitutes a major innovation as the use of recycled carded yarn is a first for the automotive industry.

Its sourcing and short-loop manufacture conform to circular economy principles, reìducing related CO2 emissions by over 60%.
