Metal and Plastic Recycling Flows in a Circular Value Chain
Kapitel i bok, 2021

Material efficiency in manufacturing is an enabler of circular economy
and captures value in industry through decreasing the amount of material used to
produce one unit of output, generating less waste per output and improving waste
segregation and management. However, material types and fractions play an important
role in successfulness of recycling initiatives. This study investigates two main
fractions in automotive industry, namely, metal and plastic. For both material flows,
information availability and standards and regulations are pivotal to increase segregation,
optimize the collection and obtain the highest possible circulation rates with
high quality of recyclables. This paper presents and compares the current information
flows and standards and regulations of metals and plastics in the automotive
value chain.
