BMW to collaborate with Boeing on carbon fibre

FRANKFURT, Dec 12 (Reuters) - BMW said it has signed a collaboration agreement with Boeing to share manufacturing knowledge about carbon fibre.

The pact aims to advance research for carbon fibre recycling as well as know-how about manufacturing and automation, BMW said on Wednesday.

BMW Group will bring two vehicles with a carbon passenger cell on to the market for the first time starting late 2013. Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner is made up of 50 percent carbon fibre material.
