SKODA AUTO production sends zero waste to landfill since start of year
The company is also pursuing an eco-friendly approach to waste disposal even if conventional methods would be more economical. Whenever waste is recycled thermally, ŠKODA ensures that the energy released during incineration is used to generate electricity or heat.
In particular, however, the car manufacturer is focusing on avoiding producing any waste from the outset. In addition, no paint sludge accumulates as a waste product and the new exhaust air decontamination system reduces the amount of paint residue created per car body by more than 2 kg. The car manufacturer has not sent its municipal waste to landfills since back in 2016, and has instead had this type of waste incinerated.
ŠKODA combines its environmental activities in the ‘GreenFuture’ strategy, which is based on three pillars: ‘GreenProduct’ deals with the development of vehicles that are as eco-friendly as possible – in terms of fuel consumption as well as the materials used and their recyclability.
