In Finland, a joint production by UPM and Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Sciences, the Biofore concept car, will be premiered at the 84th Geneva International Motor Show, March 6-16, 2014.
Various parts of the concept car will be made from UPM’s biobased materials – the UPM Formi biocomposite and UPM Grada thermoformable wood material. These materials will significantly improve the overall environmental performance of the car, without compromising quality or safety. The concept car will be fuelled by UPM BioVerno wood-based renewable diesel.
