SYNETIQ handles salvage and end of life vehicles, recycling an average of 96.3% of each end-of-life vehicle it dismantles – surpassing EU legislative targets. SYNETIQ says its integrated circular model means it’s perfectly placed to maximise the economic and environmental potential of all salvage or end of life vehicles – whether by safely reusing green parts, or as part of the compliant vehicle recycling process.
