RRR

Reusability, Recyclability, Recoverability-Directive

Situation
The European Reusability/Recyclability/Recoverability directive (RRR) regulates the recyclability and reusability of materials in the production and recycling of vehicles. Complying with the RRR directive causes high labor costs for OEMs and suppliers in the Automotive industry.

Challenges
For suppliers, it is not enough to create material lists. They must also define parts that are subject to their own rules, such as wheels. There are also rules for parts that can be removed and reused before recycling is considered.

Solution
The iPoint Compliance Agent (iPCA) helps to gather the necessary information and to simulate various recycling processes.
Thus, the prescribed re-use and recycling rates can be met. With its detailed information about the ELV materials, the iPoint Compliance solution guarantees compliance with RRR. The physical disassembly of prototypes with iPoint Compliance Agent (iPCA) is superfluous. The agent simulates a wide range of processes, provides full support in the definition of treatment, cutting and shredding, and documents the flow of materials.

The software calculates RRR quotas in accordance with ISO 22628 and also creates the associated reports conforming to this standard, providing an important building block for type approval.

Practical: Whole assemblies - such as complete vehicles - can be mapped with a single process model. Moreover, iPoint's solution is also flexibly expandable, for applications such as DfE (Design for Environment) and LCA (Life Cycle Assessment).
