Immediately impressed by the build quality and unique simplicity of design, a Green Car All in One depollution system had been installed, proving as the Recycling Live’s management later confirmed, that one machine could process significantly more ELVs than previous processes:

  • “More efficient”
  • “More Reliable”
  • “Productivity is up”
  • “Cleaner working environment”

Despite Lockdown, 11 design protected All in One depollution systems have already been rolled out across the first four sites, backed up by the original award-winning Side Tip ELV prep stand and Green Car’s state of the art pipework installations.

Four, All in One systems were installed at the Impressive 15 Acre Flagship Recycling Park in Preston which boasts Europe’s only online Fragmentiser. The All in One systems are reliably powering through the high input to keep up with this ground-breaking facility but then it’s not surprising. Quality and reliability are in award-winning Green Car’s blood – their depollution specialist, Julian Dale, is the son of a Rolls Royce Jet Engine designer!
