In particular, the EU framework related to batteries and end of life vehicles (ELV) is posing severe challenges to the automotive value chain. This involves requirements of the incorporation of plastic recyclates in the material compositions, and aspects related to the ultimate recyclability of components and waste streams after the end of life of the cars. This challenge requires a comprehensive understanding on the traditional materials performance approach. It also concern the issues around the plastic recyclates such as sourcing, handling, purity, stability and other limitations. All these matters are vital in gaining sustainable material solutions for the industry.

Norner has been a competent developer of performance plastic solutions through its more than four decades experience. Through the last years Norner has been developing the organization to support the needs from the automotive value chain on the sustainability aspects through strategic investment in competence development as well as new facilities and machinery in Norner Recycling Center.
