Pilot Project: Physical Recycling Makes Mixed Plastic Waste Recyclable
- Audi is setting up cycles as an integral part of its automotive value chain
- Test phase launched: physical recycling complements research projects on chemical and mechanical plastic recycling from old vehicles
- The vision: create high-quality granulate materials for use in serial automotive manufacturing
Audi is promoting sustainable product development and wants to establish more and more cycles. Together with partners from science and industry, the company with the four rings is researching ways of improving material recyclability and saving primary materials. In collaboration with the Fraunhofer Institute, the manufacturer is now testing an additional method of recycling plastics and making them usable for mass production. As part of Audi Environmental Week, Audi employees will be focusing on recycling and many other ideas for a more sustainable company. This is the campaign’s second year and it is intended to promote networking, exchange, and interdisciplinary cooperation with the aim of improving Audi’s sustainability performance.
