BMW shines headlights on remanufacturing

Tuesday, 19 November 2019

BMW has highlighted its parts remanufacturing operation in an interview encompassing the car manufacturer’s circular economy activities. Talking to GreenBiz, Jury Witschnig, BMW’s head of sustainability strategy for products and production, said: “This is a really interesting market — it’s about how to take the materials and modules out of a car before they’re scrapped. The market is actually currently very small.” Describing Encory, BMW’s joint venture with recycling firm Alba, Witschnig emphasised the difficulty of reverse logistics: “We produce more than two million cars a year in 30 places worldwide. But more than two million people every year have different cars, and you have to get them back to recycle them. This is a difficult process which might make it a little more difficult to get the real recycling or remanufacturing of these cars.”
