The Going Green with Graphene (G3) project aims to create next-generation composites, based on graphene-coated natural fibers.

Composite materials with synthetic fibers act as a good lightweight component that can replace heavy metal parts in various applications. But they are still not the best option for the environment due to high CO2 emissions during production.
