Abstract:
Hand dismantling of end of life vehicles (ELV) may have limited use on recovering the majority of materials that will be in our future automobiles. Research is being conducted on automated methods to recover pure plastics from automotive shredder residue (ASR). As part of USCAR initiative, the Vehicle Recycling Partnership (VRP), a cooperative effort among Chrysler, Ford and General Motors undertook a study to determine the feasibility of obtaining pure plastics from ASR using density and skin flotation separation technologies. The total project concept is described in this paper including important elements such as the detailed dismantling of a baseline vehicle to define total plastics complexity, shredding vehicles, collecting ASR samples and performing R&D work on automated recovery methodologies.
