The automotive industry is on the brink of revolutionary change! Our comprehensive study reveals how the circular economy holds the key to sustainable success. 

With an annual demand of over 7 million tons of steel, 6 million tons of plastic, and 2 million tons of aluminum in the European market, the automotive industry faces immense challenges. The transition to electric vehicles, the ban on combustion engines by 2035, and new regulations demand a transformation across the entire value chain.

The circular economy is the solution! It not only enables a more independent material supply and reduces environmental impact but also lowers production costs through sustainable upcycling of end-of-life vehicles.

New EU regulations compel the industry to handle end-of-life vehicles responsibly and promote the circular economy. Proactive approaches to targeted end-of-life vehicle management and standardization among market participants offer tremendous potential for innovation, sustainability and profitability.
