At the IAA international automobile trade show in Munich/Germany from September 7-12, 2021, Faurecia will focus on innovations to reduce the CO2 footprint of its products by using sustainable materials and processes plus designing to extend product life and recyclability. The company will also be demonstrating the ultra-low emissions technologies and new hydrogen solutions to support the transition to Zero emission mobility.

With the vision for the cockpit of the future, Faurecia SA, Nanterre/France, focuses on designing safer, more comfortable, and personalized experiences. By 2030 it aims to reduce the CO2 footprint of the materials used by 87%, in particular through expanding and improving the NAFILean and NFPP bio-composite solutions used for structural parts such as instrument panels and door panels. The fibers used in the bio-composite ranges and some of the interior parts in which they are used will also be showcased. The lightweight structures can offer up to 40% weight savings in car interiors.

Faurecia’s Seat for the Planet innovation program takes a complete seat approach – from frame, to the foam, covers and accessories. The first generation of complete seat solutions incorporating such features offer up to 15% weight savings and 70% reduction in emissions compared with conventional seats.
