    Challenge of minimising natural resources usage

    Basic approach

    The Toyota Boshoku group is pushing ahead with the promotion of readily disassemblable and recyclable design, the development of technologies for material recycling and the replacement of materials with a range of plant-derived materials in an effort to help curb the depletion of fossil fuels and minerals.

    Employing door trim using kenaf in the LEXUS UX

    Toyota Boshoku continues to develop products using kenaf, which grows quickly and has high CO2 absorption capabilities, with the aim of enhancing fuel efficiency and cutting CO2 emissions by reducing vehicle weight. Such products are being used in a broad array of automotive components. In December 2018, door trim using kenaf was utilized in the LEXUS UX. Previously, kenaf was commonly used for the bottom part of the door trim, but the latest development has expanded application to the top section of the door trim, resulting in a more environmentally friendly product relative to its predecessor while realising the same reduction in weight.
