The idea of beekeeping originated from AUDI AG, Audi Hungaria's parent company. In 2015, Audi Hungaria was in the midst of implementing its flora and fauna protection plan thus the beekeeping idea was in line with ongoing developments, and quickly taken up by management. 6 bee colonies with 270,000 bees were installed in September 2015. The bees produce 200-240 kilograms of honey each year, which is branded as Audi Hungaria Premium Honey, and gifted to visitors, as well as purchasable in the gift shop.

Carbon Upcycling's proprietary, patented technology chemically adsorbs CO2 emissions into exfoliated inorganic solids to create a portfolio of fine nanoparticles. Per tonne of product, their technology sequesters sizable quantities of CO2 and has been proven stable during temperature tests.
First they place powder feed stocks in reactors, then they pressurize it with gaseous CO2 and as a result they gain nanoparticle additives for commercial applications, like concrete, plastics or corrosion coatings.
