Meeting CO2 emission targets is a demanding challenge
for most OEMs
OEMs face
several billion of
euros penalties
 What will be the
repercussion on the
customer’s price?
2010, European Federation for Transport & Environment

Innovation is the Key to limit penalties impact
Innovation regarding:
1- Car conception
Electrical vehicle
Hybrid vehicle
2- Powertrain performance
Engine downsizing
3- Car structure

The introduction of a recycled polyamide reduces substantially
the part’s environmental impact during it whole life
(from -9% to – 28%). It has been demonstrated for all evaluated points.
