Project Overview

Within the sustainable water management and the target to reduce the specific water demand per car produced by 25 % from 2010 to 2018 several measures were implemented to reduce the total water demand of the production site (status 2016: 31% reduction). For example the usage of washing water for the air conditioning (saving about 18.000 m³/a), the improved filtration of rain water for RO-water production (saving about 10.000 m³/a), replacement of the pre-treatment and KTL ...
