A new environmental advancement may just have given drivers a way to make their bumpers greener without obnoxious bumper stickers. Instead, new research shows that biofibers and bioplastics can be formed and used as bumpers and running boards, eliminating the need for non-renewable plastics and chemicals to be moulded. The project, currently being worked on with help from researchers at the University of Guelph, just received a $620,000 kick start that was part of the $10 million going out to environmental projects all across Canada. Even though the project is a great idea, in all likelihood the majority of that $620,000 is going to be used for crash tests rather than engineering new materials. At least it’s a step in the right direction.
