Grupo Antolin has taken another step forward in its firm commitment to sustainability and defossilization of mobility. The company is actively working with the supply chain to become a business reference for environmental commitment, contributing to the fight against climate change and supporting the transition to a low-carbon economy, thanks to a range of products with added environmental value. On this occasion, it presents a substrate that includes a polyurethane foam obtained from mass-balance certified renewable feedstock (vegetal and crop residues among others). The headliner is laminated with a textile made from recycled polyester fibers with the aim of protecting natural resources and reducing dependence on fossil-based materials.The headliner, which has been released in serial production for a new car model, has the same appearance and properties than a standard headliner, so the sustainability improvement happens without any reduction in mechanical or physical properties. This achievement has been made possible by a manufacturing process developed in collaboration with our key suppliers. This an example that cooperation is essential to move forward in sustainable mobility.For the core PU foam, the supplier has developed a process by which the fossil-based raw materials have been replaced by renewable feedstock derived from organic waste or food industry residues at the very beginning of the value chain thus supporting climate protection. Finding a solution to recycle this sort of waste has a paramount positive impact.The fabric laminated to the headliner substrate has been manufactured by Borgstena entirely with polyester yarns from recycled PET bottles and using electricity from renewable sources in the manufacturing process.The reduction of the carbon footprint of the headliner is linked to the Grupo Antolin’s goal, shared by the entire value chain, of progressively reducing CO2 emissions from its own operations until total neutrality is achieved. Furthermore, the energy used by Grupo Antolin in the manufacturing process of the headliner substrate comes from 100% renewable sources.
