BComp: Sustainable Lightweighting in Motorsports

Since the introduction of carbon fibre to the racing world 40 years ago, it has been seen as the holy grail for bodyworks – this is about to change now. Carbon fibre has a striking sustainability and safety issue that can’t be overlooked anymore. Bcomp’s ampliTex™ + powerRibs™ natural fibre solutions offer the same stiffness and weight of thin-walled monolithic carbon fibre parts in a package that reduces the CO2 footprint by approximately 85% cradle-to-gate and is much safer due to a ductile breaking behaviour without sharp debris in case of a crash. Viable end-of-life options in the form of incineration for highly efficient thermal energy recovery without hazardous residual waste and avoiding the need for landfills further boosts the overall sustainability of Bcomp’s natural fibre solutions.
