ENVIRONMENTAL FACTOR CONSIDERATIONS FOR FUTURE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRYP. Sivakumar, B. Vinod and R.S. Sandhya Devi
This paper discusses possible scenarios of environmental threats and the way they can impact on the automobile industry . The greatest environmental challenge for the automobile sector is the depletion of non-renewable resources and in particular crude oil. The vast majority of oil is used during the utilization phase of the car in order for the lifetime energy demands to be covered. In addition, a variety of air pollutants such as carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, hydrocarbons but mainly carbon dioxide are emitted to the environment through the combustion of gasoline or diesel fuel contributing to significant impacts such as climate change, acidification, eutrophication etc. End-of-life vehicle (ELV) waste flow is an important environmental concern. In this paper, presented a holistic view of the environmental engineering issues of the ELV recycling. This paper summarizes the findings from the global benchmarking study that relate to the automotive industry and identifies areas that require attention for the future.
