Abstract:
Legal producer responsibility for end-of-life vehicles will be introduced in Sweden 1998. In an ongoing 1-year project the conditions tor a producer-dismantler network are developed, aiming at increased recovery.About 5000 cars of 5 makes are treated by 30 dismantlers. Producers (manufacturers and importers) not actively involved participate in an information feedback program.The producer-initiated project develops interaction with existing expertise and experience of management of sometimes conflicting interests. Urgent questions are cost-effectiveness, recovery methods and markets, dismantling instructions, and monitoring methods.The project is expected to expand into a national network of producer-contracted dismantlers, with possibilities for even further expansion.
