Plastic recycling needs regulation, innovation and collaboration
The automotive industry grapples with the intricate challenge of recycling plastics from electric vehicles, facing hurdles such as polymer diversity, assemblies and economic disparities.
The increasing use of plastics in the automotive industry, particularly in the context of electric vehicles, has brought about a complex challenge in the realm of recycling. As the demand for lightweight materials rises, plastics play a crucial role in offsetting the additional weight of EV batteries. Not only do certain high-performance plastics enhance safety in collisions, but they also contribute to the overall efficiency and sustainability of automotive design.
