Russia | In Russia, March 8th marks the beginning of an experiment on encouraging the purchases of new cars in exchange for the scrapping of junked ones. As of this day, the list of the companies which will become participants on the experiment and will be engaged in the ELVs take-back, transportation, dismantling and recycling processes as well as in the sale of new cars has been basically finalised.
For the sake of the experiment the Government of Russia will allocate quotas for the sale of 200.000 new cars in exchange for the scrapped old ones. This pilot project intended to give support to the national automotive industry will last until November 2010. In the event if the experiment turns out to be successful, it may be prolonged. According to estimations, half of the car fleet in Russia is more than 10 years old and every year not less than 1 million cars reach their end of life.
A conference on ELV recycling will be held April 7th in St. Petersburg, in the SCC as part of the XIX-th international exhibition THE AUTO WORLD.
