Bio-based materials for bases of Roof Boxes – step 1

The purpose of the project is to find suitable bio-based or recycled materials for the next generation of roof box bases, which will be industrialized within a period of 2.5 years. The project is focused on finding materials within the range for design, process and cost. Thule produces over 400,000 roof boxes every year globally. These currently use about 20% recycled material, but the goal is to further reduce their impact on the environment.
