As a century-old car manufacturer, especially a large leading company like Audi, the impact on the environment must not be ignored. In this case, what can Audi do?

Dr. Matthias Rossmann also shared two R&D projects carried out by the Audi Environment Foundation.
The first is a collaboration with the University of Berlin in Germany to develop a smart filter for the now ubiquitous microplastics. This filter is designed to be suitable for placement in the city's sewer system. In addition to directly filtering out harmful plastic particles, it is more important to collect the source and type of these things and digitize them to establish the plastic particles in the city. hot spots for prevention, advocacy and improvement. Another very interesting project is the cooperation with Heidelberg University to develop drones equipped with advanced sensor technology to monitor the state of the woods, which is arguably the most powerful for those who are interested in protecting plant ecosystems.
