In 2022, a one-year pilot operation was jointly launched with AUDI AG, Reiling Group and Saint-Gobain Building Glass Deutschland. The objective was to turn damaged automotive glazing into recyclable material for model production.
This project is now going further, and a joint recycling pilot project called MaterialLoop was initiated with 15 partners from science and industry.
The common goal is to evaluate the recycling of end-of-life vehicle materials from a technical, ecological and economic point of view, in order to save valuable primary materials and lower the products’ ecological footprint.
MaterialLoop provides valuable insight on how a circular economy can be implemented. It means using more and more materials from old cars to manufacture new vehicles.
This new joint project represents a strong step towards circular economy in the automotive industry, which is in line with our commitment to sustainable mobility and to work on significant change to preserve our future.
