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

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 cont.

For dismantlers:

  • Removal and segregation of non-metallic materials
  • Receiving ATF status

For shredders:

  • Minimising shredder residue

  • DTI Consultation Paper gave three options:

1) Brand-specific contractual scheme

2) Tonnage target scheme

3) Hybrid scheme

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
