End of Life Vehicle (ELV) Directive

Each vehicle must undergo detailed de-pollution by an Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF) before the car can be scrapped. Substances covered in this de-pollution include: tyres, fuels, oils, batteries, anti-freeze and pyrotechnics. The main objectives of the directive are to:

  • Reduce the amount of automotive waste sent for landfill
  • Reduce the amount of hazardous materials in new car manufacture
  • Eliminate pollution risks from the car disposal process, such as soil and water contamination by vehicle fluids
  • Improve the environmental performance involved in the life cycle of vehicles

Wallis Metals de-pollutes several hundred cars per year at its ATF’s and we work closely with the Environment Agency and have a programme of ongoing environmental quality improvement.
