To reduce CO2 emissions from vehicles, the most suitable solutions seems to be to reduce their weight by using composites materials. Compofast, a project supported by Ademe and competitivenss clusters: Plastipolis and Véhicules Du Futur, gathers 12 companies and 6 research & education organizations to develop:

  • new materials and reinforced fabrics
  • new simulating methods
  • new manufacturing process of composites part

which meets cost and production rate requirements of the automotive industry for serial production.
