Reducing noise from internal combustion engines and from the high frequencies of electric vehicles

The roughly 20% of clothing donations that cannot be reused are transformed into soundproofing materials for automobiles or high-calorie solid fuel (RPF)*1. Approximately 22 T-shirts (4.3kg clothing weight)*2, are cut, turned back into fiber, and recycled into enough soundproofing material for one car, reducing engine noise in a petrol car and high-frequency waves in an electric car.
