Hyundai to debut seat using sustainable leather and regenerative materials

January 27th, 2022 / By: / Industry News, News

Hyundai Transys, the global auto parts manufacturer and Hyundai Motor Group affiliate, announced that the company will debut its innovative future mobility seat concept at Lineapelle International Leather Fair, from Feb. 22-24.

Hyundai’s new seat was produced through the re-use of tanning waste from the automotive sector. 

In partnership with Lineapelle, the biggest international leather trade show, Hyundai Transys will present its vision for future mobility with a color-material-finish (CMF) concept seat model using sustainable leather and other regenerative materials from tanning waste. Under the theme ‘Shift to Regenerative Mobility,’ Hyundai Transys worked closely with Italian leather tanneries, manufacturers and Korean suppliers to visualize the future mobility seat concept.

Hyundai Transys will exhibit in Lineapelle’s innovation section, showcasing sustainably processed, upcycled leather design work. The seat was produced through the re-use of tanning waste from the automotive sector, where discussion about sustainable, ethical leather usage has increased recently.

Hyundai Transys is minimizing its environmental impact by reducing waste, transitioning to reusable energy and developing eco-friendly products. Its new CMF concept is an important step toward aligning its product offerings with Hyundai Motor Group’s vision of clean mobility and goal to achieve carbon neutrality by 2045.
