Entry Description

aceteams goal was to create an electrical bicycle and build it in an environmental friendly way. In cooperation with the Faculty of Wood Science and Technology of the Eberswalde University for Sustainable Development (HNEE) the idea became reality. Combining CNC-technology and the knowledge of wood material, the first wooden E-Bike was developed. Wood is a natural material but it also binds CO2 while metal production requires an eight times higher energy input leading to increased CO2 emissions
