Inthey pay particular attention to the use of materials in their cars that come from recycling. In fact, they try to find sources which at first sight seem “strange”.
The practice of reusing materials in many areas of the manufacturing process of new cars is well known inThe need to protect the environment and through recycling has resulted in them trying to find new sources that will constitute as “raw material” every time.
As announced by the German company, the scientists who constitute its respective department they experiment with nets and nautical ropes which are no longer used and are waste.
According to BMW’s plan, these will result in investments mainly for the interior of its vehiclesi.e. its purely electric models that will be presented from 2025 onwards. However, they will not be limited only to the interior, but parts of it will also be made up in other parts of the vehicle.
Based on what is planned bywith the use of recycled materials will be reduced by 25% the energy footprint compared to that of plastic. The goal set by the BMW Group is to use recycled thermoplastic material in 40% by 2023, from 20% today.
The car industry is working with the Danish company “Plastix” in order to do as much as possible easier and more efficient the production of the new material. The process of the experiments remains secret, but it is known that the plastic granules from the discarded nets and nautical ropes will be able to be reshaped through injection molding.
