Faurecia has created a new division to develop and manufacture sustainable and smart materials.

The new division will benefit from Interiors’ and Faurecia Seating’s portfolios in materials with ultra-low and negative CO2 emissions, as well as materials integrating thermal, acoustic and bio-medical technologies.

The Sustainable Materials division will work across Business Groups and propose a full cockpit low CO2 and even CO2 negative materials approach to OEMs to support their sustainability objectives.

Faurecia will use its experience of formulating bio-sourced materials and their transformation background, including low variability management.

Faurecia is planning to build a dedicated Sustainable Materials R&D Centre and a Pilot plant, both operational in 2022.

The new entity will initially employ 125 engineers and more than 400 in 2030.
