Today we examine the ever-expanding use of plastics and scrap or recycled plastic in auto recycling.

“Auto recyclers have been focusing on the recycling of some car components for many years, particularly steel. Conversely, auto plastic recycling is still in its infancy, since recycling of some plastics and polymer composite-based components can provide challenges in terms of cost, technology required and the very makeup of plastics. Further strides are being made to recycle plastics, however, especially post-industrial scrap, and use recycled plastic materials in car components as auto companies have made strong pledges to reduce waste and use of recycled materials in new vehicles. The overall quality of recycled bales & materials have greatly improved recently, increasing the ability of engineering to use recycled plastic toward production of new components. As segment of our focus of pursuing zero waste, SPI works to leverage the strength throughout the supply chain—from resin suppliers & equipment makers to processors, brand owners & recyclers—by recognizing challenges to recycling across the variety of plastic packaging and products. In the transportation end markets, like automobiles, SPI is beginning projects to help find opportunities for both recycling suitable plastic from automobiles that have reached the end of their useful life, as well as using recycled content to producing new cars & components.

Plastics and particularly recycled plastics are playing a state-of-the-art and growing role in auto makers everywhere. The American Chemistry Councils Plastics Division says plastics make up about 50% of a modern automobile’s volume, but only a mere 10% of its weight. Engineering and design teams seeking cost & weight savings are accepting technological advancements in plastic components for their distinctive properties & flexibility. The paramount catalyst for acceptance of plastics in car designs is surpassing the Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards & assisting in boosting a vehicle’s fuel economy. The relative volume of plastics in automobiles is increasing, but with the industry focus on cost reduction, and the recent dip in oil & natural gas values, the market dynamics of using virgin resins vs. recycled materials is shifting. Thus, it is important for automakers to acknowledge the value of using recycled content, in both material properties and the environmental benefits. The true value of recycled material far exceeds any potential savings in cost. The auto industry recognizes trends & purchasing habits of consumers who want firms & products to be environmentally sound. Both domestic and foreign auto makers have been leaders in the green movement, in development of lighter, safer vehicles utilizing alternative fuels. Also, in minimizing overall waste & recycling materials like plastic.” The full study is available at www.plasticsmarketwatch.org
