Secondary Markets from Recycling

Escrito el 12 julio 2009 por Jesus Guerro en General

It is clear that companies usually focus their environmental responsibility through the prism of the obligation, the cost and tedium. Very few who devote their time and resources to investigate how environmental requirements can be aligned with its corporate strategy and the ability to offer differentiated services and even new lines of business.


By the contrary, it uses to take a technical, bureaucratic and procedural environmental management. Environmental Technicians have a valuable knowledge about legislation, the control of parameters and measurement tools, but only in relation to environmental impact. Usually they do not have enough vision of business to propose solutions aimed at enhancing the benefits or market share while complying with such obligations. The managers also forget to make efforts towards this approach.
Without doubt, the recycling policy has encouraged the emergence of new markets. Thus, the automotive sector, under a very strict environmental legislation, has led to the emergence of new proffessional markets for plastics, foams and metals. Today, cars are recycled by 85% and according to the Community Normative this rate should reach 95% in 2015.
For this, Automotive Scrapping, seen until now as second-class business, will undergo a terrific technological development. Only certified centers called CARD will be authorised to operate. They will have to comply with the technology necessary to disassemble and clasify the materials, providing clean and safe storage of fluids (engine oil, brake fluid, fuel..) and make a rigorous control of all material that is processed with on line registration of their destination or status. The authorities will support initiatives to facilitate the professionalization and optimization of the CARD in order to reinsert into sales channels as many pieces as possible, reducing the need for natural matarials extraction and manufacturing pollution, with the resulting energy savings and reduced emissions CO2 to the atmosphere.
Companies should not waste time wondering whether the environmental management can be profitable or not, they have to think how to do it. And do it know.
