  • The Audi Environmental Foundation, Audi Hungaria, and CLEAR RIVERS have installed a floating litter trap in the Danube
  • Project partners aim to raise awareness for global issue of plastic waste with team campaigns and information
  • Collected plastic is to be recycled and processed
  • Rüdiger Recknagel, Managing Director of the Audi Environmental Foundation: “Together with our partners we are campaigning for the protection of our environment”

A further milestone has been achieved in the collaboration between the Audi Environmental Foundation and CLEAR RIVERS: In cooperation with Audi Hungaria, a floating litter trap made of recycled plastic has been installed in the Danube. The aim is for this trap to catch carelessly discarded waste from the Danube. The plastic is separated from the remaining waste, recycled in a closed cycle, and processed. Education programs also contribute to explaining the importance of clean bodies of water.
