End-of-Life Vehicle Dismantling (BDSV)

Absolutely worth seeing! It is fascinating to witness how large machines dismantle end-of-life vehicles into their individual parts. A novelty: the demonstration of innovative recycling technologies for electromobility and metal recycling, recovering important raw materials in the valuable recycling processes. Thus, the Federal Association of German Steel Recycling and Disposal Companies (BDSV) and its member companies are setting new standards. This live demonstration will be an exciting highlight for trade visitors from all over the world. Witness the latest technical possibilities of mechanical recycling processes and experience them at first hand. At IFAT.

  • Removal and disposal of hazardous components
  • Removal and disposal of liquids
  • Sorting procedures
  • Transport compression/pressing

See what machines can do

Get up to speed with the state of the art. Experience the individual steps of end-of-life vehicles dismantling in detail. The live demonstration at IFAT is a valuable illustration for all dismantling companies and operators of shredding facilities. Visit the demonstration and gain unique insights into the complex recycling processes.

The demonstration will also be interesting for representatives of municipal or local authorities, for them to obtain comprehensive information about the new possibilities for the recycling of materials from electromobility. In fact, this live demonstration is an impressive event for any visitor—also from outside the industry. So, plan a short stop for the end-of-life vehicle dismantling demonstration.

In dialog with legislators

New information on the legal situation, technical solutions for dismantling companies—this is what IFAT is all about. Since the late 1990s, legislators have been increasing the quality requirements for recycling processes. The provisions of the German End-of-Life Vehicles Ordinance cover the entire production process: manufacturers, vehicle owners and dismantling companies become responsible links in the recycling chain. Especially dismantling companies are very important, as they are to efficiently pre-treat the materials.

As the world's leading trade fair for environmental technologies, IFAT is a fantastic opportunity to speak to political representatives and businesses with a view to optimizing recycling processes and developing practical and targeted solutions. In doing so, IFAT and its participating associations and exhibitors make a valuable contribution to understanding the complex treatment processes.
