On December 21, 2016, Tanvir Arfi reported the following on Collision Mag:  “We are used to change in the auto scrap and recycling market, but things seem to be accelerating. There will supposedly be over 200 new electric & hybrid autos in the next couple years. Autonomous cars may be coming soon too. Where is the automotive scrap industry headed? The newer vehicles will have over 80 micro control units within them. Some of which may be recording information, but there’s an snowballing trend towards conveying that data directly to interested people. Telematics is not really new, but the number of autos being retailed with connectivity already built-in just increased dramatically over the last few years. A car that has OEM gateway feeds info directly from the auto to the OEM. This data is tremendously valuable to the OEM, and to insurance providers and the repair shops.

The number of autos sold featuring these has climbed to 7.8% in 2016. That’s a big climb in just a few years, but it isn’t done. Projections of this trend indicate it will rise to 53.3% by 2020 and will continue to rise. Let me assure you, this information will be put to use. Looking at insurance, we can expect to see somewhere between 60 and 120M usage-based insurance policies by 2020, a growth rate of between 60 and 70%. For repairers, this wealth of data has numerous benefits. In addition to receiving a first-notice-of-lose within minutes or second, they’ll be able to determine a total loss nearly immediately. The decision will be largely automated, thanks to the enormous amount of data that the systems will be able to draw on. This has advantages, certainly, but it’s also disruptive to the industries concerned, and that includes automotive recycling. We’re going to see things change, rapidly, if we are prepared for that change or not.

Big data and the growth of telematics are an important factor, but far from the only thing we must consider. We have also seen a veritable explosion of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). Many of you may have some of this technology in your car right now, including adaptive cruise control, lane shift assist, limited self-driving capabilities such as Tesla’s Autopilot, blind spot monitoring /assist, park assist, 360-degree sensors, reverse camera and sensors & brake assist systems.”  The complete article is available at this link.

A study co-authored by the Center for Resource Recovery and Recycling, Metal Processing Institute, and the Worcester Polytechnic Institute reported some interesting data: “The total recycling rate for auto aluminum is 91%. These surveys covered 5% of the US’ dismantling industry considering the amount of end-of-life (ELVs) vehicles entering the survey responder’s lots, 32% of the downstream separation industry based on volumetric throughput and 60-70% of the secondary aluminum processing sector based on market share statements. The measured average material collection percentage for ELVs that go through a dismantling outfit and a downstream separation system is 99.7%. The major hindrance for the auto aluminum recycling percentage stems from the recovery processes. The product when in the form of aluminum oxide is brought to a landfill from these processes. When a heavier gauge scrap category is charged, referred to for our purposes as a heavy recovery process, the metal yield of 95% is typical. Light gauge scrap melting is believed to generate in a metal yield of 91%, and the method is termed as a light recovery process in the report. Most of auto aluminum is light gauge, mixed, or shredded scrap. It’s been stated that 86% of obsolete auto-aluminum is charged in this form.

Analyzing the sensitivity to determine a minimum & maximum auto aluminum recycling percentage (RR%) for the US. This RR% range is 80% – 98%. The measured average of 91% falls between there and is believed to be much more indicative of the overall industry versus these extremes. This report provides a basis of the variability of the secondary aluminum production sector specifically relative to auto aluminum gathering and recovery.

The demand for aluminum in the North American auto sector is supposed to grow through 2025. Ducker Worldwide reports a 39% spike of aluminum weight per North American light vehicle over the next 10 years. The big driver for the rise is the added content in body sheet & closures with continued content expansion in casting & extruded auto-components. The rise in aluminum is somewhat driven by the advantage of vehicle light-weighting to attain the Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFÉ) standards. Aluminum, being a lighter-weight product compared to conventional materials, delivers similar strength. Lighter materials allow for overall lighter delivered vehicles with similar safety performance while boosting fuel economy. The amplified use of aluminum in auto also helps advance car fuel efficiency while reducing overall energy usage and greenhouse gas emissions from a vehicle lifecycle point of view, as indicated in several life cycle studies.” The full story is available here: http://drivealuminum.wpengine.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Final-Report-Automotive-Aluminum-Recycling-at-End-of-Life-A-Grave-to-Gate-Analysis.pdf
