Waste is a valuable resource that can be used in many, complex applications.

Together, we produce 2.1 billion tons of waste each year… To show that waste can be reused, student team TU/ecomotive presents a car made out of waste. It is a sporty looking electric car named Luca that weighs only 360 kg, plus 60 kg of batteries. The chassis is made out of flax and recycled plastics, of which the major part comes straight from the ocean. Luca has a top speed of 90 km/h and a range of 220 km.

Team members Matthijs van Wijk and 22 students from 7 different majors
