Educational car recycling plant for Latin America

Brazil – The Brazil-based Federal Center of Technological Education of Minas Gerais (CEFET-MG) and a Japanese investment group are to build a modern recycling facility for end-of-life vehicles, to be used as an educational project for students.

The pilot plant, claimed to be the first such facility in Latin America, will be located in Belo Horizonte, north of Rio de Janeiro. According to Brazilian media reports, the plant will look to address all vehicle components and will facilitate training for students, teachers, engineers and technicians. Technical courses and master’s/doctoral theses are also envisaged.

Construction of the plant is scheduled to begin in February, with completion anticipated later in the year.
