Automobile Recycling Policy: Findings and Recommendations
Author(s)Field, Frank; Ehrenfeld, John; Roos, Dan; Clark, Joel
This report focuses on recycling. As an objective neutral party, MIT has compiled a knowledge base that examines the many complex issues relating to re-cycling. Although this report was prepared at the request of the Automotive board of Governors, it was not prepared solely as an industry response document. Rather, it attempts to focus on the concerted actions that both industry and government should take. MIT hopes that the document can serve as the basis for forging international consensus on a rational approach to recycling policy. This document presents the findings and recommendations of this group to the Board of Governors. In addition to these recommendations, supporting materials in the form of four appendices, tracing specific aspects of the problem of vehicle recycling and the ways in which these problems can be analyzed, are appended.
Findings and recommendations presented to the Automobitive Board of Governors, World Economic Forum, Davos.
