ELVES, the compliance scheme for End-of-Life Vehicles (ELVs) in Ireland, last week released their 2017 Annual Report, the first since they were approved as the compliance scheme for the end-of-life vehicle sector at the start of 2017.
ELVES’ Annual Report 2017, provides an overview of the schemes’ activities in its first year of operation and reports that its Network of Authorised Treatment Facilities (ATFs) will have met the 95% reuse, recycling and recovery target for end-of-life vehicles. The report also provides information on ELVES’ other activities including its role in providing a compliance solution to vehicle importers and its success in improving awareness of the right way to scrap a vehicle.
“We are delighted to be able to publish ELVES’ first Annual Report, detailing our progress in building our Network of ATFs and ensuring that the Network meets the required European targets for reuse, recycling and recovery. We think we have made a very strong start, and are looking forward to building on this initial success.” said CEO, Fiacra Quinn.
In addition to setting up the ELVES Network of ATFs, the Annual Report also details some of the organisation’s other projects including their recently rolled out Traction Battery Programme providing support to ATFs when they receive hybrid or electric vehicles.
ELVES (ELV Environmental Services CLG) was set up by vehicle manufacturers to improve and promote the recycling of scrap vehicles. ELVES was approved to operate as the compliance scheme for the end-of-life vehicle sector in the Republic of Ireland from 1 January 2017.
