A £100,000 research project has been launched which will evaluate the potential of bio-composite materials in the production of future automotive vehicle bodywork panels. The research, announced yesterday at Autosport International, will be carried out by Performance Engineered Solutions (PES), TEKS UK and the University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) with Boeing.
The research is backed by a three month funding package of £50,000 from the Niche Vehicle Network.
