Recycling cars

Car companies such as Mercedes, MBW and FIAT are developing vehicles whose parts and components can be entirely recovered. There is already a plant in Leer, Germany, built with the support of Volkswagen and Bayer, which dedicates exclusively to disassembling and recovering auto parts that are no longer useful. This is a very meaningful iniciative since in Germany 2 million cars, corresponding to 400 thousand tons of waste as discarded yearly (in 1990, 2,6 million cars were turned into scrap). Some companies already take into account, during project and desing planning, that components and parts should be easily recoverable after they can no longer be used
