In the April 27, 2016 edition of Waste Dive, an article by Arlene Karidis titled ‘Plastics bring opportunity to automotive recycling’ informed us of the following developments: “The Society of the Plastics Industry (SPI) released a report regarding opportunities within the auto recycling industry focused on plastic, as more of it is being used. The Plastic Market report discussed the commodity from both the end-of-life view as well as by uses of recycled material to manufacture new automobiles. Also, the report speaks to others including designers, scrap auto recyclers, and policymakers. Authors are focusing on manufacturers’ zero waste goals, which required decisions on what to do with their scrap.

Key points regarding plastics representing ½ of the volume of materials in a new car, yet only about 10% of the weight. There are approximately 39 varieties of plastic used in vehicles. By 2020 it is projected that 700+ lbs. of plastic will be incorporated into a new car. Each year, 12M to 15M vehicles are scrapped out in the US, and they have tons of salvageable components for recyclers. Typically, metal recyclers yielded the most pay off by focusing on the industry, at the end-of-a-vehicle’s life. Plastics are lightweight, so vehicles are cheaper to ship and take up little space when disposed. New technology is emerging that auto manufacturers are paying attention to. These manufacturers are challenging their sustainability efforts, incorporating plastics has become a part of the overall plan.” The complete article is available here.
