    Plastic

    Mitsubishi Motors' Green Plastic initiative is just one example of our continuous innovation on behalf of a cleaner, more sustainable environment. This initiative flows from the fact that a great many plastics are used in the manufacture of cars. Traditional plastics are petroleum based, which increases the strain on the world's non-renewable resources. Our idea is to replace those plastics with a new plant-based resin. In addition to the oil savings, plants consume a large amount of CO2 during their life cycle. We have also experimented with using fast-growing bamboo fibre to reinforce the new resin. In tests, the prototype achieves an estimated 50% cut in lifecycle CO2 emissions compared with the more conventional polypropylene, a widely used petroleum-based plastic. This innovative approach is just another example of how we are striving for sustainable solutions.
