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%.
