Vehicle Recycling

Waste to Energy Development Center Consortium

Vehicle Recycling

The Consortium and its members execute the following tasks in the project management workflow. 

Vehicle Collection: Organizing the collection of vehicles that have reached the end of their life cycle, disposing them at certified sites, and reporting them to the official vehicle registration system. 

Vehicle Depollution and Dismantling: Removing propellants, fuels, and hazardous components, such as batteries as well as components containing high-value structural materials, such as catalysts and e-products. Disassembling and sorting large pieces of plastic, rubber, glass, and fabrics in order to facilitate further recovery.

Parts Dismantling: Increasing the material recovery rate and supplying the remaining fleet with controlled, high-quality dismantled parts.

Fluid Recycling: Processing and recycling fluids, such as engine oil, gear oil, and antifreeze for reuse or safe disposal.

Shredding: Shredding vehicle bodies to further separate and recycle materials.

Metal Recovery: Recovering and recycling valuable metals, such as steel, aluminum, non-ferrous and precious metals, as well as rare earth metals.

Battery Recycling: Disposing and recycling vehicle batteries properly to recover lead, lithium, and other valuable components from electric batteries.

Tire Recycling: Dismantling vehicle tires to recover rubber and other materials followed by pre-treatment (separating metal rim and tire) and recycling.

Recycling of Electrical and Electronic Products: Removing, treating, and recycling electrical and electronic components in vehicles, such as electronics, mechatronic components, airbag modules, infotainment systems, and cable harnesses.

Disposal of Hazardous Materials: Disposing hazardous materials, such as airbags containing explosive charges, pyrotechnic cartridges, or other potentially hazardous components.

Reuse of Parts: Identifying and refurbishing reusable parts.

Waste Minimization: Minimizing waste generation, maximizing the recycling of structural materials from vehicles and appropriately disposing non-recyclable materials.

Quality Control: Implementing quality control measures to ensure that recycled components meet safety and performance standards.

Certification and Compliance: Ensuring compliance with industry and environmental regulations and obtaining the necessary certifications for responsible recycling practices.

End-of-Life Vehicle Reporting: Preparing reports and documentation required by regulatory authorities to record the amount and environmental impact of recycled materials and monitoring the recycling process.

Research and Development: Participating in research and development activities to find innovative ways to improve recycling and sustainability.
