BMW buys solar energy-made aluminum from UAE

Tuesday, 02. February 2021 17:13

BMW announced on Tuesday it began its new "green mission" and started sourcing and using aluminum that has been produced by solar energy.

According to the company, Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA) will be the main supplier with 43,000 metric tons of aluminum only in 2021 that should cover almost half the annual requirements of Plant Landshut, the BMW Group’s only production facility for light metal casting in Europe.

The company added, "the trend towards e-mobility means that a much larger percentage of a vehicle’s lifecycle CO2 emissions now comes from the upstream added value in the supplier network."
