The rise of electric cars

The automobile sector is continuously being transformed. The number of companies which rely on sustainability and show their commitment to the environment is increasing every day. They do it through the use of electrical means of transport, which contaminate less than traditional ones.

The most prominent case is that of car2go, a subsidiary of German Daimler AG, which in 2008 launched an electric car rental service, charged per minutes of use, together with Smart, throughout European cities and in North America. The booking is made via a smartphone once the user has been registered in its database. After signing up, anyone can use the service in all the cities in the world where it is installed. [...]

RAFAEL CONTRERAS’S CONSIDERATIONS AFTER THE SHAREHOLDERS’ MEETING

Dear shareholders, in the first place, I would like to thank you for the confidence you have shown and continue to show towards Carbures, especially after a complicated end of 2014 and 2015, a time during which the Company has suffered, rather from external causes, beyond our activity and industrial production capacity, which, nevertheless, continued to increase, reaching its record of production of aircraft pieces last year, with about 40,000 units.

Rain and pollution

Rainy days are equivalent to traffic jams in major cities not only in Spain but also globally. This causes very high pollution peaks. But the car industry is evolving towards less polluting vehicles.

The diesel engine crisis has shown that the way to making more sustainable cars has no longer to do with the engine but with the vehicle’s structure. The revolution of carbon fiber in the mobility industry will reduce pollution levels in cities independently of traffic jams.

The materials with which the vehicle parts are constructed have an impact on the speed and the degree of contamination. This is why companies like Carbures are committed to innovation in manufacturing cars and airplanes and have developed their own technology based on carbon fiber, which is 4.5 times lighter and up to three times stronger and more flexible than steel, with which large parts for aircrafts, cars and other vehicles are produced. This way, means of transport are lighter, more efficient and less polluting, reach higher speeds and use less fuel. [...]
