Increased Re-Use of Components From ELV's: A Sign of Customer and Environmental Care 2000-01-1513
Normally, once a vehicle leaves production, newly manufactured spare parts are produced and bought to cover up to 15 years of use. An innovative concept is to view the fleet as a potential spare-parts store.
On 1 August 1999 ECRIS AB launched a combined business and environmental project lasting 24 months on “Re-Use of Car Components From The Car Recycling Industry”.
The target of the project is to develop and demonstrate a method and the business potential in re-using components from the recycling industry that today are sent for material recycling or depositing in landfills.
Increased usage of components from ELV's is a sign of both customer and environmental care.
