Recycling Recycling for a brighter future
Volkswagen Group United Kingdom has partnered with Autogreen Ltd to provide a Government-approved national network of certified dismantling companies.

We also take back a large range of used parts from vehicle repairs and remanufacture on an industrial scale. These parts are sold across the world with a full manufacturer's guarantee under the name Genuine Parts.
Old catalytic converters have valuable metals like platinum and rhodium extracted and used in new ones. And to add to the economic recycling of end-of-life vehicles, we have developed and tested the VW-SiCon process. This allows the shredder light fraction to be processed and put to optimal usage.
The first large-scale industrial plants to use the VW-SiCon process are being built or are in the planning stages. So the recovery target of 95% for end-of-life vehicles now seems to be almost attainable.
