Renault and Indra Automobile Recycling have teamed up to put improved infrastructure in place for recovering, recycling, and reusing truck parts. The companies are currently in the process of finishing up a year-long study conducted along with CIDER Engineering, an expert in dismantling heavy-duty trucks and other machinery, to determine “the key success factors and criteria needed to establish this type of commercially-oriented network,” Renault says. Once the companies reach conclusive results, they will deliver them to ADEME, a sustainability-focused agency, for review in October of this year. ADEME also provided financing for the project.

Letter Of Intent

A letter of intent, signed by Renault Trucks President Bruno Blin and Indra Executive Director Loïc Bey-Rozet on 2 July, seals the deal for the partnership and states that the companies will begin recycling trucks on a larger scale. To start, Renault will send 15 trucks to five Indra facilities for dismantling, with the goal of processing 100 trucks by the end of 2020. The process involves cleaning the parts, referencing them, and then selling them to customers via Renault’s network of workshops and dealerships. Renault says that any leftover material will be recycled.
