The new federal fuel economy standards are putting a premium on efforts to make cars lighter. So, despite the massive problems in the auto industry, interest should be high in this year's Automotive Composites Conference and Exhibition sponsored by the Society of Plastics Engineers' automotive and composites divisions. The keynote speaker at the Sept. 15-16 event in Troy, Mich., will be Dana Myers, president of Myers Motors LLC in Tallmadge, Ohio. Myers Motors is the manufacturer of a plug-in-electric, composite-bodied, three-wheel behicle called the NmG (for "no more gas.") The title of his speech will be Composites Help Electrify Transportation. For more information about the conference, visit the Composites' Division Web site.
Is this the future of auto transportation?
