Japanese researchers create biomaterials for car parts

Researchers from Kyoto University in Japan have created a bioplastic material made from wood pulp that can be used as an alternative to steel in car parts. Meanwhile, Tatsuo Kaneko, a professor at the Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, is using biological molecules to develop bioplastics that can withstand temperatures of up to 300 degrees Celsius and could be a substitute for metal parts near a car's engine.
