Italian car industry reaches deal on scrapping

Four national bodies representing Italian car makers, retailers and dismantlers have reached an agreement to share the burden of implementing the EU's 2000 end-of-life vehicles (ELV) directive. The deal, reached last week, aims to turn the management of the 1.5 million ELVs scrapped in Italy each year into an "environmentally and economically sustainable activity", according to the dismantlers association Fise Unire. Under the agreement the number of cars dismantled at each recycling plant, plus associated costs, will be strictly monitored. See Fise Unire.
