SUSTAINABILITY

RECYCLING


For BMW i, it's about taking responsibility for the entire life cycle of its vehicles, even beyond their on-road life. Innovations in the development, manufacturing and recycling stages are helping BMW i set new standards of sustainability throughout the entire process of vehicle production. To be even more efficient BMW i uses materials that are easily recycled and reused including the high-performance lithium-ion battery, which can be repurposed as 2nd life for energy storage.

As a pioneer for using CFRP in the production process, BMW i is also at the forefront of recycling carbon fiber. Remnants from carbon fiber production and carbon components are valuable materials that are either channeled back into the production process, or reused in other areas. For example, a recent collaboration with Boeing Commercial Airplanes for a joint research effort in carbon fiber recycling includes plans to share key manufacturing knowledge.
