Read Time:1 Minute, 18 Second

In an extremely crowded world where pollution has reached its maximum levels, carmakers in the auto industry should adopt a more friendly environmentally approaches when it comes to recycling their old cars, as recycling itself can pose a serious threat to the environment.

BMW is the world`s leading carmaker in the auto industry, which besides building the best cars and adopting the best policies on that matter, it is also a leader when it comes to recycling.

And the real proof is that BMW has been dealing with recycling since 1994 at its Recycling and Dismantling Center, where almost every single piece can be recycled and then used as parts for new cars. And the process itself is extremely friendly to the environment.

The videos below are showing the process of striping of the old cars, starting with safely removing the airbags and draining all the fluids, and keeping up with the melting of the steel and aluminum parts. After that, the recycling process starts.

The good part is that the BMW i3 and i8 hybrids can also be recycled, with the carmaker using almost 95 percent of their parts, especially since we are dealing here with the carbon fiber composite used to build them. The process starts with heating up the carbon fiber, reinforcing it with new fibers and then using it again on new cars. Simple, isn’t it?

Now that we have stirred up your curiosity, just push the play button and watch how BMW recycles its old and used cars, without too much polluting the environment!
