Forging Ahead: A materials roadmap for the zero-carbon car
The systems-wide change needed to create circularity in the automotive sector and sometimes seem costly and prohibitive. However, as this report demonstrates, significant abatement is possible for the auto industry with very little additional added vehicle material cost. Using a special carbon abatement model, this analysis shows that a large proportion of automotive material carbon emissions could be abated by 2030 at no net-cost increase using technologies and practices that could be implemented today.
The report is the last of three framework reports developed by the Circular Cars Initiative to help the sector and its regulators better understand automotive’s new sustainable future.
