A joint project between automaker Audi and the industrial resource strategies think tank at Karlsruhe Institute for Technology (KIT) is aimed at finding an alternative to energy recovery as an end-of-life solution for automotive plastic components that are not suitable for mechanical recycling.

That work will focus on the many auto parts that are composed of more than one type of plastic, posing challenges for efficient mechanical recycling.

“We want to establish smart circular systems in our supply chains and make efficient use of resources,” said Marco Philippi, senior director of procurement strategy for Audi, part of Volskwagen AG

The new pilot project seeks to create smart circular systems for plastics, by establishing chemical recycling as a complementary technology to mechanical recycling, relegating incineration to the past.

The technology is being evaluated at KIT by teams led by Dieter Stapf at the Institute for Technical Chemistry and Rebekka Volk at the Institute for Industrial Production. Audi supplies the end-of-life plastic components recovered from Audi models returning from the German dealership network, which are then chemically processed into pyrolysis oil, to serve as feedstock for the production of new raw materials.

The technology enables a wider range of plastics to be recovered and conserves resources because fewer primary materials are required.

Audi is one of the first automobile manufacturers to test this recycling method in a pilot project with plastics from automobile production.

“Recycling automotive plastics has not been possible for many components so far. That is why we are doing pioneering work here together with Audi,” Stapf said, “If we want to close these loops, we need to develop suitable methods for this.”

The Audi E-Tron is pictured here, but the Landjet sounds like it’ll be leagues ahead in terms of luxury.


Audi

Volkswagen Group continues to pour resources into electric cars, and in addition to affordable EVs from the Volkswagen brand, the automaker has what sounds like a mighty luxurious flagship vehicle in the works, according to a new report.

German newspaper Handelsblatt reported this past weekend the vehicle, code-named Landjet, will be a shared EV from Audi, Porsche and Bentley. It should feature three rows of seats with seating for seven. What’s unclear is if the vehicle will be an SUV or have some sort of hybrid sedan body style. Designers are starting to have fun with EV designs since the powertrain opens up a world of possibilities from a design standpoint. One source told the German newspaper the vehicle will be target the Tesla Model S, however. That’s a little peculiar since the Porsche Taycan effectively does this, but the Landjet project reportedly aims to achieve 404 miles of driving range.

According to more information from Automotive News Europe, Audi will undertake development and its version should arrive first, possibly in 2024. Porsche’s and Bentley’s own models based on the Landjet will come after. VW Group didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment on the reported information. This car is also different from the coming Audi E-Tron GT, which shares its platform with the Porsche Taycan.

Amid all of this, rumors point to Bentley transferring over to Audi management as VW Group looks to find the British automaker’s niche. And the brand will go totally electric by 2030. The Landjet could be an important part of Bentley’s future plans.
