Hyundai Mobis, South Korea’s biggest supplier of auto components announced an innovative environmentally-friendly product made of hanji, or Korea’s traditional handmade paper. The company has developed a premium speaker made of hanji, which will be used in the new version of the Grandeur model automobile of Hyundai Motor.

Speakers are composed of a body and foam edge. They are made using metals like aluminum and the latter is made with sponges or rubbers. The disposal at the end of their use caused harmful gases. In comparison, the new premium speakers from Hyundai Mobis are made of hanji for the body and eco-friendly silicon rubbers for the foam edge.
