Jaguar Land Rover has launched an aluminium recycling scheme, as part of its goal to cut wastage and reduce CO2 emissions.

02 Apr 2019 | International News : U.K.

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has launched a new aluminium recycling scheme that aims to reduce wastage and CO2 emissions throughout its entire production process. As part of JLR's Reality Project, the scheme aims to recover aluminium from end-of-life production vehicles, with the aluminium then melted down and reformed into material for future model production. 

Currently, JLR are trialling the new scheme with metal taken from a group of pre-production I-Pace cars. The batteries of these I-Pace cars will also be reconditioned and reused. The cars are deconstructed in a controlled process, and the scrap sorted into varous material grades using a set of advanced sensors. 

A team of scientists at Brunel University in London are also carrying out strength tests on the recycled material to ensure that it can offer the same crash protection as fresh aluminium.
