The ZEvRA (Zero Emission Electric Vehicles Enabled by Harmonised Circularity) project was launched to contribute to a clean and competitive future by improving the circularity of electric light-duty vehicles and includes Şişecam as one of its partners. This innovative effort received support amounting to EUR 250,000 from the European Union's Horizon Europe program.
Coordinated by Fraunhofer Institute, Europe's largest applied science, research, and development organization, in line with the EU's zero carbon emission target for 2035, the ZEvRA project will be realized with the contributions of 28 partners, including world-renowned 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 minimizing natural resource and chemical use with innovative production techniques.
