HELLA announces research project for sustainable headlights

January 19, 2023 |

In Germany, HELLA said it is researching in collaboration with industry partners how headlights can be designed more climate friendly. To this end, the automotive supplier has now started the NALYSES research project, in which the BMW Group, Covestro, geba, Miele, the Heinz Nixdorf Institute of the University of Pa-derborn, the Fraunhofer Institute for Mechatronics Design Technology IEM and the Hamm-Lippstadt University of Applied Sciences are also involved. The results of the project are to be incorporated into the development of future generations of headlamps but shall also be considered for other application and product areas. The three-year project is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). “The aim of our research project is to design and produce our future products more resource-friendly and with lower emissions. We are therefore looking at options to reduce the CO2 footprint of a headlamp over its entire life cycle,” said Michael Kleinkes, who is responsible for development in the lighting Business Group at HELLA. “In essence, the example of the headlamp will be used to research how products and raw materials can be reused as long as possible in the sense of a circular economy. The findings contribute significantly to HELLA’s climate objective to manufacture its products CO2-neutral by 2045 at the latest.”
