Skoda: the Vrchlab plant? becomes 100% carbon neutral


Automotive manufacturers are veering decisively towards the & quot; via & quot; carbon neutral and also Skoda , since the end of 2020, has adopted the aforementioned philosophy at the components site of Vrchlab & iacute; , thus becoming the first carbon neutral production plant for all Skoda Auto. As a result, the plant now has reduced energy consumption and & egrave; switched to renewable sources . So it is doing, the Bohemian builder & egrave; was able to reduce the plant's CO2 emissions from 45,000 tons per year to the current level of 3,000 tons. Soon the other factories of Mlad & aacute; Boleslav and Kvasiny will follow the same path.

Miroslav Kroupa , Head of Brand Management for Skoda Auto, emphasizes: & ldquo; As an automotive manufacturer we have a responsibility; particularly in climatic and environmental protection. We started by reaching neutrality; of CO2 at our site in Vrchlab & iacute ;, which & egrave; among the most advanced in the world, and we are setting an example in terms of sustainability; environmental and energy efficiency & rdquo ;.

At the Vrchlab & iacute; plant, the careful management of energy consumption has made it possible to save more; of 2,000 MWh of thermal energy and almost 1,500 MWh of electricity; only in the course of last year. In addition, the plant's unused heating circuits have been closed, new intelligent systems for regulating the temperature of the premises have been introduced and the air conditioning system has been introduced. been optimized. In addition, the lighting of many environments is; aligned with working hours.

Since the beginning of 2019, all waste from the plant's production process has been recycled materially or thermally & ndash; and all the factories of the Bohemian manufacturer have adapted to this procedure since the beginning of 2020. This year, Skoda Auto has also started using in Vrchlab & iacute; bio-methane from biogas plants instead of natural gas. At the main plant in Mlad & aacute; Boleslav & egrave; under construction the most & ugrave; large solar roof in the Czech Republic.

30% of the fuel required to generate electricity intended for the heating and electrical supply system of the plant, & egrave; obtained from renewable raw materials . By the end of the decade, only biogas and carbon neutral biomass will be used. Skoda Auto also plans to further reduce emissions from refrigerants and company vehicles by 2030. Skoda's mission for the future is; simple and clear: to reduce the emissions of its fleet more & ugrave; by 50% by 2030 compared to 2020 levels and plans to increase the share of all-electric models in Europe by 50-70 percent. By 2030, the company will add at least three other fully electric models to the range.
