Another advantage of car parts from hemp biocomposite materials is their cost, which is currently comparable to the cost of production of ordinary plastic, but due to the increased production volume tends to decrease it. In addition to environmentally friendly raw materials in the production of hemp biocomposite technology is also used up 20% of the polypropylene resin. The feedstock is formed into pellets, which are then used in the process of obtaining the final shape parts.
