Abstract:
The composition of New Generation Vehicles under the Partnership for a New Generation of Vehicles (PNGV) program is anticipated to be significantly different from the typical automobile available now on the market. A spreadsheet cost model of the automobile recycling infrastructure was developed to estimate the potential effects of New Generation Vehicles on the future economic viability of the recycling industry. On the one hand, the higher value of aluminum is likely to cause a positive impact on the three distinct players in the recycling industry, if some technical issues are overcome. On the other hand, the economic viability of the current recycling industry may be diminished by the substitution of composites.
