Auto manufacturers have set a goal for the technical recyclability and recovery of new vehicles that calls for as much as 95% of the vehicle weight to be diverted from landfill in a technically and economically feasible manner. In order that future vehicles achieve this goal, which is in line with the draft European Union End-of-Life Scrap Vehicle Directive, it will be necessary to develop a system to recycle the vehicle electrical wiring harnesses. This paper describes the development of a process that uses a cryogenic method of separating the non-metallic insulation from the metallic conductor material.
