Katrin GanssGraduate in material science and engineering in 2006. Research Associate at Thueringisches Institut fuer Textil- und Kunststoff-Forschung since 2007 in the department textile and material research. Fields of interest: sustainable materials from recycled or renewable resources, processing and optimization.
CO2-savings and conserving resources during production and use are now important aspects in the manufacture of interior components. As there are different ways to implement these requirements for interior parts, this presentation will take a closer look at possible weight savings, process optimization and the selection of suitable materials like natural fibers or recycled plastics.
