what if ?
20% plastic By 2030, if we recycle all polypropylene from EOL vehicles, it could cover up to 20% of Europe’s vehicle-production needs
100% copper A year’s worth of recycled copper from EOL vehicles could cover more than all of Europe’s EVs
100% platinium By 2030, if we recycle all platinum from Europe’s EOL vehicle exhaust systems, it could cover more than all of the continent’s automotive needs
