TOKYO, JAPAN: Teijin’s ECO CIRCLE Plantfiber bio-polyester has been selected for use in the seats and interior trim surface of the 100 per cent electric Nissan LEAF, updated on 20 November 2012. It is the first time for ECO CIRCLE Plantfiber to be used for the interior of a mass-produced vehicle. The seat and interior trim surface were co-developed by Teijin, automotive seat manufacturer Suminoe Teijin Techno Co Ltd and Nissan Motor Company Ltd. Specifically, ECO CIRCLE Plantfiber is used for the seats, parts of the door trim, headrests and centre armrest.

More than 30 per cent of ECO CIRCLE Plantfiber’s composition is made with biofuels derived from sugarcane. Teijin’s bio-polyester fibre conserves fossil resources and lowers greenhouse gas emissions due to its carbon neutral effects, yet still offers the same characteristics and quality of oil-derived polyester.
