Honda recently announced that it has found a way to make fabric for car interiors that meets all the needs of a modern car but is made from plant fibers. The fabric is not totally "green", as the polyester material (PPT, polypropylene terephthalate) in the fabric is made from 1-3PDO (propanediol, which is produced from corn) and terephthalic acid, a petroleum-based component, according to Honda's press release.
