An Integrated Approach to Vehicle Recycling Facilities

Naif A. Alsaadi and Matthew J. Franchetti
Abstract—The Integrated Approach to Vehicle Recycling Facilities is a research proposal is designed to find out the most effective and efficient method that can be used to improve global end of life vehicle (ELV) recycling. The present world is concerned in achieving a balance between environmental protection and conserving resources to achieve sustainability in production. Therefore, ELV recycling is not only cost related but also aimed at reducing environmental intoxication and hence cut off unnecessary health hazards. Automotive recycling processes involve other processes that are collection, transportation de-pollution, dismantling, shredding, melting, and disposal.

Index Terms—De-pollution, dismantling, shredding, ELV.
