Audi Environmental Foundation turns plastic waste into recreation areas

Audi Environmental Foundation turns plastic waste into recreation areas
  • Together with project partner Recycled Island Foundation, the Audi Environmental Foundation is opening the first “floating park” in the Port of Rotterdam
  • Rüdiger Recknagel, Director of the Foundation: “We want to use new technology to make the environment more livable”
  • Further collecting basins for plastic waste are planned for Brussels and Ambon (Indonesia) 

Together with project partner Recycled Island Foundation, the Audi Environmental Foundation opened a floating park in the Rotterdam port of Rijnhaven on Wednesday. To create the park, the project partner filtered plastic waste out of the New Meuse River with the aid of specially designed collecting basins. The waste was then sorted and made into floating plastic islands. The landscaped islands now serve as recreation areas for port visitors and residents.
