BMW takes another step towards a sustainable futureFebruary 2, 2021
BMW Group launches solar-powered aluminum. This will help the company reduce its supply chain CO2 emissions by 20% by 2030.
43 thousand tons of “solar aluminum” will cover almost half of the annual demand of the BMW Group plant in the German city of Landshut. In addition, BMW has reached agreements with suppliers to use clean energy for battery production.
The use of aluminum will help reduce the weight of BMW electric vehicles and compensate for the heaviness of the batteries. And the release of the batteries themselves will leave a much smaller carbon footprint in the atmosphere.
The solar park in Dubai, which powers EGA for aluminum production, will soon become the largest in the world. And the light metal workshop of the BMW Group in Landshut is the only one in Europe. It manufactures large structural body parts, electric drive and engine components.
This means that every BMW car sold will contribute to the improvement of the environment.
