Audi recycling waste material

We’ve already reduced our waste by a considerable amount using some innovative thinking. We all know waste significantly affects the environment, but disposing of it costs a lot of money too. And that’s not efficient.

So a thorough review of our practices on the production line led to an extensive recycling scheme and a complete rethink about the logistics of waste management. Now most of the waste produced on the assembly line is separated and sorted on-site, reducing the need to transport elsewhere for processing.

(We’ve also reduced our transport needs by using a software system which calculates every last square centimetre of loading space in our lorries, maximising the available space. Packaging is already optimised in the planning stages; our packing team and their computer find the most efficient way of loading, further reducing the number of lorry journeys.)
