FAQ

1.     Does each operator need a drainage area to work, regardless of the area available?

The need to use specialized equipment for the dismantling and depollution of end-of-life vehicles is basing on the European directive 2000/53/EC. It regulates that all vehicle manufacturers and importers of new vehicles are obliged, together with all other affected economical operators of this sector – to take back the end-of-life vehicles from the market and to make sure that their components are dismantled and depolluted in a way that guarantees a respectful treatment of the environment.
For the vehicle owners the take-back must be free of charge and it concerns all vehicles for the transport of max. 9 passengers and a weight of max. 3,5 t.
The directive defines the free-of-charge take-back of the vehicles like this:
– the vehicle must be delivered to a permitted treatment facility indicated by the vehicle manufacturer that takes it back free of charge;
– the vehicle must be complete or at least must include all essential components such us motor, gearbox, vehicle body, electronic components and catalyzer;
– the vehicle must not contain any type of garbage.
When an “end-of-life” vehicle has been delivered to a suitable facility, it will be dismantled and depolluted in a proper way, including the following operations:
– Drainage of all fluids (oil or gas form): petrol, diesel or gas air conditioning
– Dismantling of the battery and of the tyres
– Neutralization of the airbag system so as to deactivate the same in order not to create problems of safety in the process of demolition.
