Heard that you can cure bamboo which hardens it to be more resistant to splitting. This could be used for interior panels like the doors or arm rests?

They could probably use it for center console trim pieces, just not sure about the dash in case it does splinter in an accident. Cured bamboo may be more resistant to splitting, but it's not fool proof.

The entire construction of door panels can be made out of bamboo, as far as the structural parts go and trim. Maybe with hemp becoming more socially acceptable we'll see parts made of hemp.

Hemp would be a great idea. Golden crop considering it could be used for so many different things.

Might take a while for it to happen due to what's happening on a political level and regulation level, but once that's all worked out, naturally on the individual level people will start making hemp products, which then grows to higher levels.

Guaranteed but I think it's only a matter of time. It's in the pipeline and it may be a bit difficult with some snags here and there, but it'll work out

Never though of hemp until now, but if there are already hemp clothing being produced, vehicle upholstery using it isn't really that far a stretch.

It will be very normal in the not too distant future to see a growth in products made from hemp.
Many things going on even just a carbon level which makes hemp the most useful. Just won't happen over night, give the plant time to lower in price.

It's going to be a while before the plant lowers in price. That's the golden crop and can literally be used for a plethora of things, thus the name golden crop.
