Design for Recycling.

Start by thinking of the end.

BMW specialists start laying the foundations for end-of-life vehicles to be recycled and disposed of efficiently and in an environmentally friendly manner during the product development process. Our Engineers and Design team work closely with our very own recycling specialists to consider the needs of recycling and ELV Disposal.

Life Cycle Assessment case studies are used to systematically analyse the environmental impact of components. Virtual and actual dismantling analyses are carried out to ensure that each BMW vehicle achieves the set goals. These measures enable the complete neutralisation of all pyrotechnic devices to be carried out quickly and safely, all operating fluids to be removed quickly, plastic components are marked with the correct material label and recycled materials are used properly.
