The topic of Automotive recycling (ELVs End-of-Life Vehicles) brought together around 50 people from industry, research and local authorities last Wednesday, the 26th of March in Mulhouse, France.

Organised in the frame of the European project S_LIFE , the aim of this conference was to give an overview of the actions lead by the consortium , to listen to experts of this sector and to participate to 3 thematic workshops:

  • Sorting for better recycling
  • Looking ahead together: national coordination on recycling
  • Training for the Future of the automotive value chain

end-of-life value chain must seize in order to structure itself and find its best possible business model, thus creating added value and jobs.

Reminder: Nowadays, 85% of the ELV mass is already revalorised (second hand parts, material recycling & energetic valorisation). From January 2015, it is 95% that will need to be revalorised dividing by 3 the mass of products needing to be buried.
