Reduce weight and
protect the climate
To develop mobility concepts that save resources in the long term, it will become necessary to produce energy-efficient and low-emission vehicles in future. One crucial aspect here is the weight of the vehicle. The Magnesium Innovation Centre (MagIC) at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht is making a significant contribution in the development of lightweight yet safe and stable materials based on magnesium. Magnesium is significantly lighter than steel and aluminium and therefore crucial for lightweight construction. Use our calculator to see how much fuel, and with-it money, you can save by reducing the weight of your vehicle, and how great the resulting emissions savings are.
