Profitable Recycling of Automotive Wiring Harnesses 2000-01-0736

Legal requirements, especially in the European Union, rising concern about our environment and economic reasons force us to look at End of Life Vehicles (ELV's) more critically. This paper describes some projects where recycling technologies have been developed showing clearly that recycling can be profitable. The projects demonstrate the recycling of Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) insulation in automotive wiring, a separation technology for different plastic materials by melting point, the treatment of laminated materials like flexible printed circuits, some ideas of fastening systems, suited for disassembly and several basic rules for making recycling easier and profitable.
