Şişecam will produce low-carbon automotive glass for electric vehicles as part of the ZEvRA project.
The ZevRA (Zero Emission Electric Vehicles Enabled by Harmonised Circularity) project was launched to contribute to a clean and competitive future.
It will achieve this by improving the circularity of electric light-duty vehicles, and includes Şişecam as one of its partners.
The effort received support amounting to €250,000 from the European Union's Horizon Europe programme.
The project is co-ordinated by Fraunhofer Institute, Europe's largest applied science, research, and development organisation, in line with the EU's zero carbon emission target for 2035.
The project will be realised with the contributions of 28 partners, including automotive companies such as Skoda, Citroen, Peugeot, Toyota, and Volkswagen.
As part of the project, Şişecam plans to produce competitive, low-carbon footprint, high-value-added automotive glass in line with its sustainability goals.
Under this 36-month project, Şişecam will support the vehicle battery with specially produced solar glass while minimising natural resource and chemical use with advanced production techniques.
