Recycling of auto motives or vehicles can be explained as the dismantling of vehicles in order to acquire spare parts. Every automotive that has lived its entire useful life is usually considered as a gold mine for collecting recyclable components or materials. Persons who are benefiting from this type of work are the ones that made it an industry known as the dismantling industry. 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 if these vehicles are mostly out of commission they can still provide metal and any other material that can be recyclable.
The process which involves recycling is very complicated since there are numerous parts that need recycling and numerous parts need removing. Once the vehicles enter the dismantling yard they are first inventoried for parts. The battery and catalytic converter, wheels and tires are usually removed in the first stage. 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. This parts may be removed if their condition allow them to be of more service and can be sold to the manufactures for restoration.
As soon as all the parts are removed what is left behind will be a shell that will be crashed into a cube or flat so that it can facilitate the economical transportation that will be in bulk to a hummer mill or an industrial shredder. After they get unloaded in the hammer mill they get reduced to small portions that can be compared to a fist. The plastic, glass and rubber are all already removed from the mix during the process 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. Compared to making metal, recycling metal is said to use 75 percent less energy. Therefore, the steel industry can be able to save enough energy to power up over 18 million homes for a year and this is every year. I think it is safe to say that recycling is very essential to mankind and their environments.
