Biomass Heating & Power Station
On July 21st the new biomass heating and power station at Nuerburgring has commenced operations. The station, which includes a visitor information center for alternative energies, will supply Nuerburgring and all related facilities all year long with power and heat. The wood, as a renewable energy source, originates from regional forests. Partner of Nuerburgring in this project is RWE, one of the largest European energy suppliers.
LPG car gas karts
At the 2010 DTM weekend, Nuerburgring’s kart racing track has reopened its doors. New: instead of using regular karts, Nuerburgring has teamed up with GreenAutogas so that customers will race around the track with karts powered by LPG car gas.
Charging station for e-cars
The latest achievement of Nuerburgring: charging stations for E-cars. Directly opposite the main entrance to Nuerburgring, the welcome°center, Nuerburgring has installed 4 stations for E-cars in order to enable e-car drivers to upload their batteries while spending the day at an event (not official in operation yet).

Its pro-active environmental management operations protects against possible future claims.
