ARN’s vision is future oriented. We believe that recycling cars contributes to the circular economy, where there is no damage to the natural or living environment. That is going further by the day. What we can’t do now, will be possible later.
We are guided by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the United Nations. ARN has selected five main goals from those, which prioritise ensuring sustainable consumption and production patterns. ARN’s collaborations with a variety of partners, is in line with the UN goals.
ARN strives to make recycling processes as sustainable as possible, with the lowest possible CO2 emissions. At the same time, we choose efficient processes to keep costs low. In order to develop new applications, ARN works together with research institutes and educational institutions.
Legislation in the Netherlands and Europe
ARN responds to constantly changing legislation, from the EU as well as the Netherlands. We consult with the partners about this. As such, the regulations in the National Waste Management Plan LAP3 increase the importance of high standards of separation. Shredder companies respond to that by investing in innovation.
In the Netherlands, European legislation is translated in the Management of End-of-Life Vehicles Decree (Bba) and the Battery Management Decree (Bbb). The Bba stipulates that at least 95 percent of the weight of vehicles must be recycled. The Bbb specialises in the processing of batteries. With the growth of electric cars, battery recycling is becoming an increasingly important point of interest for ARN.
With the expertise at ARN and the quality of the partner network, ARN can play a leading role in the Netherlands and beyond.
ARN gladly collaborates to achieve increasingly better car recycling. In doing so, we hope to achieve further innovations and new, valuable applications for recycling. This will enable car recycling to make an increasingly greater contribution to a future circular economy.
