Renault Trucks Launches Study For Recycling Of Heavy Goods Vehicle Parts

Renault Trucks recently announced it will conduct a preliminary study into a possible reuse and recycling program specifically for heavy goods vehicle parts. The study is being conducted with the help of French company Indra Automotive Recycling with financial support from the Agency for the Environment and Energy Management (ADEME).

Currently Europe does not have a legal requirement to recycle heavy goods vehicles when they have ended their service life as there is for private and utility vehicles. Renault says it hopes to contribute to the circular economy while also extending the service life of its products by creating a recycling and reuse channel.

The year-long study will update dismantling methods, provide analysis of the potential market for used parts, and create recommendations for distribution. Renault then plans to introduce a parts reuse and recycling program in France which will build on the used trucks factory in Bourg-en-Bresse and remanufacturing activity in Limoges that the company already has in place.

You will find a large selection of new and used Renault trucks for sale on this site.
