Project aims at PLA truck cabins
Monday, 19 May 2014

Trucks with biodegradable cabins could soon be appearing on European roads as the result of a new research project, which aims to replace ABS-injected cabin parts with composites derived from renewable raw materials.?

The new ?Naturtruck? project, initiated by the Technological Institute of Plastics (AIMPLAS), together with other research centres across Europe hopes to improve the flame retardancy, thermal capability, overall quality and environmental footprint of the internal cabins on commercial trucks.
