How can electric components be recycled most efficiently? By reusing them. There are many ways to repurpose the high-performance lithium-ion high-voltage battery from a BMW i after its use in a car: easily and effectively as an intermediate power store in solar or wind power systems, for example.
BMW i is also a pioneer in the processing of carbon fibres and their recycling. To the BMW Group, remnants from carbon production and the production of carbon components are valuable materials that are either channelled back into the production process or reused in other areas.
But even that was not enough for us, so 95 % of the materials used to produce a BMW i3 can be recycled.
