In the URBANFILTER project, the Audi Environmental Foundation and the TU of Berlin are developing filters for road gullies. Thus environmentally harmful particles such as tire wear particles do not end up in waterways.
In Germany the curlew is one of the species threatened with extinction. Therefore years ago the “Landesbund für Vogelschutz” (LBV) initiated a project to protect the curlew population. The Audi Environmental Foundation is helping to finance a new telemetry system with stationary receivers that are being tested in the field to locate curlew families.
The first Nunam power storage systems based on used laptop batteries have been distributed and are proving their worth in everyday use. They are robust, quiet and easy to handle. That is what the early feedback from the users tells us.
We have all probably eaten algae at some point – wrapped around maki sushi or used as a thickening agent in instant meals. Algae, and microalgae in particular, have also been cultivated at the industrial level since the 1950s with the aim of preserving natural raw materials for a variety of areas of application.
Green power: Used laptop batteries become mobile power storages – Audi Environmental Foundation supports second-life battery research of start-up Nunam.
Freiberg University of Mining and Technology (TU Bergakademie Freiberg) is investigating the environmentally friendly extraction and processing of valuable resources using membrane technology underground. The Audi Environmental Foundation is promoting this innovative mining approach.
The bee research by we4bee and supported by the Audi Environmental Foundation has collected billions of individual data points so far. The first scientific findings are now available.
Audi and we4bee start project on behavioural analysis of bees. Beehives transmit huge amounts of data (Big Data) on environmental influences.
The Oak Forest project is going online. The oaks have been equipped with intelligent measuring and corresponding sensor technology for determining the interaction between density and the ecosystem performance of the trees.
Extracting plastic from the sea and creating new habitats for plants in the form of islands – this is the promise of an innovative project in the ports of Brussels and Rotterdam supported by the Audi Environmental Foundation.
Measuring an orchard meadows with drones - Audi Environmental Foundation supports innovative project using citizen science, big data and pattern recognition to preserve biodiversity.
