Research Focus

End of Life Vehicle Remanufacturing and Recycling

The ELV Remanufacturing and Recycling team focuses on research related to the handling and management of End-of-Life Vehicles through remanufacturing and recycling. Areas of focus includes socio-technical-economic studies related to ELV implementation, design for efficient recovery of products at the end of their useful life, demand and supply chain and life cycle assessment. The team also focuses on the application of enabling technologies such as additive manufacturing to support ELV remanufacturing and recycling process. Research focus is in-line with the National Automotive Policy 2020, National Remanufacturing Policy and the National Policy of IR4.0.
