Fellows Project Gencores

Gencores produces high-performance and ultra-light composite metamaterials enabling radical improvement in vehicle efficiency.


Getting transportation to net zero will require a complete transformation of the way people and goods move from place to place. In addition to changing energy sourcing, increasing the efficiency of vehicles will accelerate decarbonization and reduce the overall energy consumption of the transportation industry.

Gencores leverages advanced material science and robotics to produce ultra-light composite metamaterials. Their manufacturing process directly integrates today’s molding infrastructure to mass manufacture these novel composites for the automotive industry.

At scale, Gencores’ metamaterials will be highly competitive with metal components and compatible with current automotive requirements. Broad adoption of ultra-light composite metamaterials in automobiles can reduce vehicular weight by up to 50 percent, drastically increasing the efficiency and the range of passenger cars.
