Dismantling of vehicles so that spare parts can be acquired can be termed as recycling of auto motives. Any automotive that has live its full service life is still been considered useful due to its possession of recyclable components and materials. Dismantling industry is what that came out when auto motives begun to be recycled by particular individuals who made and are still making a living out of the work. This dismantling industry has various terms used to identify its outlets these terms are such as wrecking yard, car spare part supplier, vehicle or auto recycling and auto dismantling yard. There are usually millions of vehicles that come to an end in their usefulness, so manufacturers come in and take what can be useful and recycle it so that it may serve again for a period of time. Even though these auto motives are out of commission they can still be useful by giving back metal or any other material that can be recycled.
Many parts of an automotive need to be recycled and other parts need to be removed, therefore, the process of recycling is very complicated. The auto motives that come in the auto recycling yard first get inventoried for the particular parts. In the first stage, all wheels, tires plus the battery and catalytic converter are removed. After that we will have the fluids, such as air conditioning refrigerant, oil, gasoline, engine coolant and transmission fluid, removed too. We also have high valued parts in these vehicles such as electronic modules, starter motors, alternators and infotainment systems. Those parts will likely be removed if their condition is good and can be sold to the manufactures to be restored to how it was before.
Once all the parts are removed then what remains is the shell of the vehicle which will be crashed flat or in a cubed shape so that it be transported economically in bulk to an industrial shredder or a hammer mill. Immediately when they get to the industrial shredder they get reduced to chunks of metals that are usually like size of a fist. So that only metal can remain, the glass, rubber and plastics are removed in the mix during the process. During the process the plastic, rubber and glass are usually removed so that only metal can remain. The metal get stored so more can be added to it that they can be able to be transported in bulk to steel mills for recycling.
Recycling saves on energy and natural resources meaning it is very vital to the world at large. 75% less energy is used to recycle metal compared to making metal. Therefore, energy can be saved by the steel industry that will be enough to power over 18 million homesteads throughout the year and every year after that. It will be safe to say that recycling is vital to human beings and the environment.
