A FIVE-POINT GUIDE TO SCRAPPAGE OF ELV
The facility makes the car follow a strict five-step procedure that ensures a safe and hassle-free way to recycle ELVs.
The ELV information can be uploaded to a dedicated website by the dealerships and the owners. Using a dedicated hot line, people can connect to the facility and concerned personnel.
The registered ELV is then transferred to the MSTI campus from the dealership or the owner’s garage.
The vehicle is inspected ahead of the documentation before progressing further. Pollution certificates, insurance, and registration certificate are verified and checked thoroughly.
This is where the vehicle undergoes dismantling of its parts as well as draining of the liquids. This includes leftover fuel, coolant, engine oil, brake fluid and removal of salvageable parts such as discs, brakes, seats, engine, tyres, suspension, air-conditioner, steering, wheels to name a few. What’s left of it is just the frame or shell.
The ELV shell is then put in the compressor where it is turned into a cubic bale that weighs 200-350 kilograms depending on the vehicle. After this process, the bale is sold to steel mills and smelters where it can be recycled and reused.
