ProStAir: Reducing Pollutant Emissions with Recycled Fibers

Presseinformation / 5.11.2019

The heavier a motor vehicle, the higher its exhaust emissions. For years, the automotive industry has been trying to counteract this trend by increasing the use of lightweight components. As a rule, these consist of carbon fibre reinforced plastics (CFRP). The Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Mathematics ITWM supports the development of novel CFRP fibers in the ProStAir project with its simulation expertise.
