Eurometaux | Roadmap on the revision of the End-of-Life Vehicles Directive
The non-ferrous metals industry is one of key suppliers for the automotive sector. Metals are present in the car body (e.g.
aluminium), car battery (e.g. lead, lithium, nickel, cobalt, copper), catalytic converter (e.g. platinum, palladium) or motor
(e.g. copper) to name just a few applications.
The growing trend towards clean mobility, which is one of the elements of the EU Green Deal, will require even higher
amounts of metals from primary but more desirably secondary sources. Many of those metals are recycled in high yields
from the cars collected in Europe. However, the biggest gap to meet the EU Circular Economy objectives is that one third
of all vehicles remains undocumented at the end-of-life.
This paper responds to the Roadmap on the End-of-Life Vehicles (ELV) Directive revision and addresses key issues from
the perspective of the non-ferrous metals industry
