Module 10: End of Life Vehicle Disposal – Course 28: Introduction to End-of-life vehicle disposal
Welcome to the course on “Introduction to End-of-Life Vehicle Disposal,” where we embark on a journey to understand the pivotal role of the automotive industry in our modern world and the environmental challenges it poses. In the last century, the automotive sector, alongside energy production, has played a fundamental role in human development, with a growing number of people directly or indirectly linked to the industry’s production of road vehicles. However, the constant expansion of vehicle production and usage has raised critical environmental concerns. Throughout their lifecycle, vehicles impact the environment through energy consumption, resource utilization, waste generation, and, most notably, end-of-life disposal. As we explore this course, we delve into the pressing issue of how the proliferation of vehicles is contributing to environmental challenges, with a particular focus on the relatively recent field of end-of-life vehicle disposal. Join us to gain insights into the strategies and solutions needed to address this vital environmental concern.
