Not only an alternative: the environmental protection with second-hand spare parts the situation according to were statistics of Federal of power trip in January 2009 approved 41.3 million cars in Germany. To get another 1.7 million vehicles, which enrolled only during the year. The vehicle density resulting from these figures confirmed the automobile industry once again as one of the biggest industries. Even in current times of crisis, the new acquisition is advertised nationwide and by consumers, not least supported by the Government’s cash for clunkers program, willingly accepted. What will be the most when purchasing a new car probably as last head, is the increase in the demand for raw materials parallel to the increasing numbers of production.
And even now, what happens to the car after it has finally served out, most likely. To produce the problem to a car with its current technical standards, as well as the complex and individual constructions, it requires many times its own weight in raw materials for the production. Alone in the last five to eight years the price of resources is partially grown between 50% and 70%, and the strikingly strong weighty in the necessary for manufacturing areas such as steel and oil. With falling stocks and rising demand for raw materials of all kinds, manufacturers are forced to concentrate more and more on the focus of the maximum income from minimal resources. The waste in each manufacturing step is largely minimized and extremely reduced the energy consumption of the manufacturing facilities. The second issue of the ever-changing market is the scrapping and final recycling of old vehicles. In complex processes, the materials must be separated and processed in separate facilities and procedures. Only a part of recycled raw materials can be fed back into the active production cycle. The car recyclers have a large proportion of the reduction in the quantity of processed components of vehicles.
