SPI, Recyclers Launch Project to Recover More Plastics From Auto Parts
from Waste DIVE
Up to 15 million vehicles are scrapped in the U.S. every year and while 95 percent of them are recycled it is still economically challenging to extract plastic in many cases. According to a SPI report from earlier this year, plastics comprise 50 percent of the average vehicle's volume but only 10 percent of its weight in an effort to make lighter, more fuel-efficient models.
