In the Q8 e-tron, Audi is installing safety-relevant components that for the first time have been produced proportionately from mixed automotive plastic waste via a chemical recycling process: the plastic covers of the seatbelt buckles. As part of the PlasticLoop project, Audi has established an innovative process together with the plastics manufacturer LyondellBasell based on the findings of a pilot project, in which chemical recycling is to be used for the first time to recycle mixed automotive plastic waste in series production of the Q8 e-tron at Audi.
