From truck to rail: Audi switches up delivery of battery modules for Brussels

A holistic approach to carbon-neutral logistics is celebrating its premiere: Battery modules and cells from Hungary will in future be delivered to Brussels by rail instead of truck. This switch will reduce annual carbon emissions by around 2,600 tons – and serves as a model for revolutionizing, if possible, all shipments of the car manufacturer’s battery components. Reducing the company’s ecological footprint is the central goal of the cross-site environmental program Mission:Zero.

Audi on the road to climate-neutral mobility

Production of Audi’s final new combustion engine model will start in just four years. Beginning in 2026, the premium brand will only release models onto the market that are powered purely by electricity. The manufacturer will phase out production of internal combustion engines by 2033. In order to become a leading provider of net-zero carbon mobility, Audi is also optimizing every link in its value chain and, moreover, committing itself to the expansion of renewable energy. On the “Sustainability” theme day at Audi Media Days prior to the IAA, the company presented, among other things, its vision of a climate-neutral factory and showed how sustainability is implemented in the supply chain.

Upcycling at Audi: a new lease on life for packaging

A new pilot project being implemented at Audi’s Neckarsulm site, among other initiatives, highlights just how important the sustainable use of resources is to the company. At this location, Audi produces 3D-printed assembly aids for vehicle production – and as of recently, from waste that is generated right there on site. These assembly aids are not only made of recycled material, they also promote ergonomic and safe work processes and are tailored precisely to the requirements of the employees. As such, the project is helping the company achieve the objectives of its cross-site environmental program “Mission:Zero.”

Mission:Zero – Audi in Neckarsulm is shaping the future of production, consistently and sustainably

As the largest industrial company in the region, the Audi site in Neckarsulm is committed to meeting its responsibility to the community and nature. The site is implementing numerous measures as part of the “Mission:Zero” environmental program launched in 2019, thereby playing an important role in making automotive production as environmentally friendly and resource-efficient as possible and avoiding carbon emissions and waste. At the Böllinger Höfe sports car production facility, the Audi e-tron GT* is already being manufactured net carbon-neutralthanks to the exclusive use of green power and heat from renewable sources. The goal is to achieve net carbon-neutrality from all production processes at the entire Neckarsulm site by 2025.

Audi to become first car manufacturer to launch second-generation prelube oils

Audi production processes are set to become even more sustainable in the future: With the start of production of the Audi Q6 e-tron, Audi is introducing the second-generation steel coil lubrication Prelube II. This new product will help to significantly reduce the amount of lubricant required for protecting against corrosion and machining the metal sheets in the press shop. The idea originated from Audi employees in the press shop in Ingolstadt – and has already caught on at the Volkswagen Group.

Audi plans to cut water consumption in production in half by 2035

Clean drinking water is one of the most valuable resources worldwide: This is why Audi has included the economical and efficient use of water as a key aspect of its Mission:Zero environmental program. The company plans to keep its own water consumption to a minimum and stop using drinking water in vehicle production in the future. To this end, Audi is implementing efficient processes and closed water cycles, and increasing the use of rainwater. In the long term, Audi plans to implement closed water cycles at all production locations.

Audi e-tron GT enters series production: Carbon-neutral production begins at the Böllinger Höfe

At the Böllinger Höfe, passion meets precision, innovation and sustainability: Series production of the fully electric-powered Audi e-tron GT is getting underway there. High performance and environmental awareness go hand-in-hand here. With 100 percent eco-electricity and heat from regenerative sources, production is net carbon-neutral. The resource-conserving vehicle production process also avoids paper and packaging, uses an aluminum closed loop, and in a first for a new Audi model was planned without any physical prototypes at all.

Audi Hungaria is the second carbon-neutral Audi site

Today Audi Hungaria in cooperation with E.ON Hungaria officially started operation of Europe’s biggest photovoltaic roof installation. Since the start of the year, the site in Győr has used only green power. In 2012 Audi’s Hungarian plant opened a geothermal facility to supply most of its heat requirements. The remainder is compensated by bio-gas certificates. Audi Hungaria is thus the second of five Audi sites to achieve a neutral carbon balance.

Innovative water treatment at Audi saves up to 500,000 cubic meters of fresh water a year

Audi has reached another milestone on its way to wastewater-free automobile production. The company has put a new service-water supply center into operation at the Ingolstadt site. In conjunction with the existing treatment plant, about half of the wastewater produced at the site can now be recycled and treated for reuse. In this way, Audi will saves up to 500,000 cubic meters of fresh water each year. The heart of the service-water supply center is the so-called membrane bioreactor (MBR).
