New EU requirements affect all new cars in 2030

The EU proposes that all new cars sold in Europe must consist of at least 25 percent recycled plastic by 2030. A Swedish trial will map the consequences.

The EU wants more recycling. Also in the cars.

The union will thus force all car brands to use 25 percent recycled plastic in all new cars. 6 percent of the plastic must come from scrapped cars.

These are just some of the proposals in the EU's so-called ELV regulation which stands for 'End-of-life-vehicles'. Swedish RISE, which has also mapped the fire hazard in electric cars on board ferries , has already investigated the consequences of the proposal.

This is what RISE writes in a press release .

The project, which is scheduled to be completed in 2025, has, among other things, participation of the two Chinese-owned brands Volvo and Polestar.

Some of the things that the car brands must not count as recycled plastic with the EU's new requirements is industrial waste. Something that is otherwise largely used in the car industry today.

According to Swedish RISE, there are over 300 kilos of plastic in modern cars today. But some car brands have already taken recycling into their own hands.

For example, Skoda already made the seats in the SUV out of plastic. A total of 318 used plastic bottles go into one Skoda Enyaq. All part of the brand's goal of being CO2-neutral by 2030. However, this does not mean that the Czechs are abandoning the internal combustion engine. Read more about it here .
