Steering the Future of Ground Transportation with Composites

27 Apr 2023
Agora 6

Composites are fundamental in the development of the next generation of zero emission gound transportation vehicles. They play a crucial role in enabling motors to spin faster and be more efficient; for hydrogen to be stored safely; for ships to harness natural sources of energy; and for safe, comfortable and reliable travel for passengers.
The session will present the most innovative solutions brought by Composite Materials, shaping the Future of Ground Transportation.
