Carbon fibre has a vital role to play in vehicle light-weighting. However carbon fibre is very energy intensive to produce so re-using and recycling this material is also vital in order to gain it's full environmental benefit. Existing vehicle legislation requires that materials are recycled and vehicle end of life quantities of carbon fibre are increasing. This project explores the application of the recycled carbon fibre through the development and demonstration of a vehicle roof and tailgate for an electric hearse. Each partner will take the project knowledge forward to a variety of applications.
