Autoline | Prof. Sain Interview Speaks On Canada’s Role In The Future Of Sustainable Auto Manufacturing

DETROIT – The auto industry is working hard to reduce its carbon footprint. Dr. Mohini Sain, U Toronto and Dr. Hamdy Khalil, Woodbridge Group, speak about their team’s efforts toward manufacturing more automotive components from biomaterials. These are materials made from plants and vegetation, not from petroleum. And they’ve reached a level of sophistication and development where they are lighter, cheaper and offer better performance. This segment of Autoline is produced in partnership with the Consulate General of Canada in Detroit, Michigan, aims to showcase the work of Prof. Sain and the effort of his companies and industry collaborators to lead the world’s light-weighting sector using bioderived materials and composites.
