Plastics in vehicles

Fuel tanks (empty), hub caps, rear lights, indicators, bumpers, glass fiber, polypropylene (PP), polycarbonate (PC), PU (foamed), front lights, mirrors

Info:

Fully emptied fuel tanks may contain an explosive oxygen fuel mixture and should be handled with care. Hubcaps, rear lights and indicators as well as most of the bumpers are made out of clearly defined material and, if collected appropriately, can by recycled. Front lights and mirrors are made out of a material mixture, which is difficult to separate.

Preventing/Reducing:

Small damages on bumpers can be repaired avoiding the replacement of the entire part. Ask resellers for existing repair systems.

Recycling/environment correct disposal:

Rear lights and indicators as well as bumpers of known composition (PP, PC and PU) are separated according to material types, shredded, granulated and then used in the production of new parts. Front lights, mirrors, bumpers of plastic mixtures and fuel tanks undergo thermal treatment.
