First Bio-Resin Bike
An eco-mobility company based in the Netherlands called Van.Eko has just launched the world's first bio-resin bike and it will soon be available in the country.
The newest technology in transportation in the country is so far the most sustainable scooter. The electric scooter, or 'Be.e,' is made from a mix of flax and natural fiber.
NPSP Composites, a Dutch firm which aims in developing sustainable and fibre-reinforced plastics, provided the bio-based materials. The company tested the special flax, resin, and hemp mixture for a couple of years to see if the combination is fit for client use and production.
The NPSP Composites produced a sustainable solution for its production. The combination of the materials makes the vehicle very sturdy and lightweight. Furthermore, Van.Eko worked with other sustainable company Waarmakers for the design of the e-scooter.
The latest scooter features a 4 kilowatt electric motor with a maximum speed of 55 kilometres per hour on it 48-volt battery. A 600-watt charger is also included on the Be.e. The bike can be rented, according to Van.Eko’s website.
