Mitsubishi Motors Corp. announced that it is has developed, with the Aichi Industrial Technology Institute, a new material to be used in the interior of its future vehicles. (Pictured is the Concept-CT at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.) The material, which uses a plant-based resin and bamboo fiber, is called “Green Plastic”. Because of these components, the material produces less CO2 emissions and "volatile organic compounds" or VOCs. Mitsubishi also points out that bamboo, which grows much faster than timber, will lessen chances for depleting raw resources when mass-producing Green Plastic.
