Exploring determinant factors for effective end-of-life vehicle policy: experiences from European end-of-life vehicle systems

Kim, Nawon (2002) In IIIEE Reports 2002:7.
Abstract (Swedish)
Abstract in Undetermined

Vehicles, symbolic goods of modern society, cause serious environmental impact in their endof-

life phase owing to present end-of-life treatment practice and abandonment in nature. The

enormous volume of vehicle waste, and accompanying environmental impacts, encourage

seeking an environmentally effective policy solution to control the problem of end-of-life

vehicles. This thesis is an attempt to explore and discuss the determinant factors, which may

contribute to the development of effective and efficient end-of-life vehicle policy. Five

Abstract in Undetermined

Vehicles, symbolic goods of modern society, cause serious environmental impact in their endof-

life phase owing to present end-of-life treatment practice and abandonment in nature. The

enormous volume of vehicle waste, and accompanying environmental impacts, encourage

seeking an environmentally effective policy solution to control the problem of end-of-life

vehicles. This thesis is an attempt to explore and discuss the determinant factors, which may

contribute to the development of effective and efficient end-of-life vehicle policy. Five

European countries were studied: the main focus was on legislation, use of various policy

instruments in systems, and financial mechanisms. Based on the experiences of the selected

cases, the thesis identified several factors that influence the success or failure of the ELV

system. These are: the extended producer responsibility; role of authorities; collection, and

recycling and recovery targets; proper deregistration policy; sustainable financial mechanisms;

cooperation among actors; wise use of regulatory requirements; and importance of

monitoring. Discussion on these determinant factors, which are extracted from in-depth

research on the selected end-of-life vehicle systems, may provide better understanding of the

end-of-life vehicle issues and contribute to a sustainable end-of-life vehicle policy making. (Less)
