Like every other product in this world, cars also have their lifespan. And when they finally become more waste than a use for us, very often we have no idea what to do with them.
Out of this necessity, throughout the years, car recycling has become a well developed industry. And car recycling companies have taken a huge leap into establishing an environmentally responsible manner to dispose of them quickly and efficiently.
But, very often because of the lack of information and knowledge people have doubts. Doubts as to what happens once they sell their cars to companies offering purchasing services and the process of car recycling begins.
Well, let me finally demystify it for you.
The Process of Car Recycling Explained
As we all know, cars that are left in landfills release toxic fluids and chemicals. These fluids and chemicals can be harmful for the environment even after the vehicle is wrecked.
To prevent this from happening car recycling companies have developed a process that is both effective, but also safe for the environment.
Let’s take a closer look at how this process works.
Before the car is being crushed and recycled all the parts that can be reused are being removed. Once these parts are out, follows the removal of all hazardous materials such as the lead-acid battery, the airbags, seat belt pre-tensioners, and the gas tanks.
After that they remove the tyres and recycle them separately since they are made out of completely different materials.
The next step is disposing of all the hazardous liquids such as the car’s fuel and oils. And if the car has a catalytic converter it will be extracted too because of the danger it can cause in touch with pollutants.
After all of these hazardous materials are being detached from the car it is perfectly safe to crush it. This part is usually done by huge metal hammers. Here, what is left of the car is being shredded and the materials are being separated. Strong magnets remove the metals from the rest of the materials (about 70% of the car’s weight). And a vacuum separates the lighter materials like plastics, rubber, and foam.
After that, as separated, they proceed to recycling.
Now that we have broken down the car recycling processes, what do you think about it? Would you get your scrap car recycled?
