Overview of directive

Overview of Directive


  • To increase rate of reuse & recovery to 85% by 2006 and 95% by 2015

  • To increase rate of reuse and recycling to 80% by 2006 and 85% by 2015

Overview of directive cont

Overview of Directive cont.

Main Requirements:

  • To design & produce vehicles that facilitate recycling

  • To restrict use of heavy metals in vehicles from 2003

  • Producers to meet all or part of costs of implementing free take back system

  • To increase use of recycled materials in vehicle manufacture

Key issues

Key Issues

For VM’s:

  • Financing take-back system

  • Problem of “orphan brands”

  • Design for recycling

  • Historic car parc

Key issues cont

Key Issues cont.

For Suppliers:

  • Increasing use of recycled materials in component manufacture

  • Developing applications for non-metallic materials

  • Material coding – EU wide standards?

  • R&D costs

  • Parts marking

Key issues cont1

Key Issues cont.

For dismantlers:

  • Removal and segregation of non-metallic materials

  • Receiving ATF status

    For shredders:

  • Minimising shredder residue

Proposed uk policy

Proposed UK Policy

  • DTI Consultation Paper gave three options:

    1) Brand-specific contractual scheme

    2) Tonnage target scheme

    3) Hybrid scheme

Proposed uk policy cont

Proposed UK Policy cont.

Industry Alternative:

  • SMMT’s “Option 4”

  • Majority of support, but not unanimous

  • Trade & Industry Select Committee suggests more dialogue is needed



  • 2002 for new vehicles

  • 2007 for all cars in parc

  • DTI has suggested bringing 2007 deadline forward

Supplier concerns

Supplier Concerns

Issues raised during previous KGP research:

  • Cost implications

  • Dialogue with customers (VM and Tier 1)

Elv and braking systems

ELV and Braking Systems

Key Issues:

  • Avoiding heavy metals e.g. lead, chromium etc

  • Ease of fluid removal from brakes and shock absorbers

  • Design for recycling

Future technologies

Future technologies

Brake-by-wire Systems:

  • Electro-mechanical

  • Electro-hydraulic



  • Case for improved communication/dialogue in OE supply chain

  • Identification of development costs for design for recycling

  • Pressure for material re-use
