Automobile Recycling,Where the True Problem Lies
Group Leader: Leslie Savage
The main problem facing the current automobile recycling infrastructure is the way in which automobile shredder residue is currently disposed. In order to combat this problem we researched both long and short term solutions. Main consideration was given to short term solutions in order to “buy time” for long term solutions to be implemented.
