A Site ixbt.market created and developed with one strategic goal is to provide You with the opportunity to obtain a complete, objective and useful information about the retail market of information technologies, personal computers, their components and peripherals.

Jaguar Land Rover is testing an innovative technology for recycling materials that allows you to recycle waste plastic into new materials of high quality that can later be applied in future production cars.

According to forecasts, by 2050 the amount of waste plastic in the world will exceed 12 million tons. Today is not the entire amount can be recycled for use in the automotive industry, especially automobile components, which meet the most stringent standards of safety and quality.

the Work of Jaguar Land Rover, implemented in close cooperation with the chemical company BASF, has become part of the pilot project ChemCycling, the purpose of which is the processing of waste plastic destined for landfill or incineration, into a new high-quality material.

Through thermochemical processes plastic waste into pyrolysis oil. The resulting secondary raw material is then used in the production chain BASF as an alternative of fossil resources and, ultimately, transformirovalsya in new high-quality material that accurately replicates the characteristics of the "primary" plastics. An important quality of this material is its ability to heat and staining, making it an ideal environmentally friendly solution for the development of dashboards the new generation and elements of the external models of Jaguar and Land Rover.

currently, Jaguar Land Rover and BASF are testing the new material, using it to create the frame of the radiator of one of the test I Jaguar-PACE to ensure that it adheres to the strict safety requirements that apply to the original parts used in current models.

In the context of increasing progress on the issue of market readiness to new methods of chemical processing of raw materials, the development of a new premium material will mean that Jaguar Land Rover will be able to use own recycled plastic in all their vehicles without any detriment to quality or safety.

the Development of new technology for recycling materials is the next step for Jaguar Land Rover to the problem of plastic waste. The British concern has already partnered with Danish company Kvadrat, offering customers an alternative – both premium and eco-friendly options for the seat trim. High-quality material, first introduced on the Range Rover Velar Range Rover Evoque combines a durable wool and faux suede, and when it was created using 53 recycled plastic bottles per car.

Jaguar Land Rover has already achieved its 2020 goal is to provide zero waste production in the UK. We are talking about the withdrawal from the production process of plastic 1.3 million m2 – equivalent to the area of 187 football fields and replacement of the 14 million disposable plastic products used during the working process.

All these measures are implemented within the mission of Jaguar Land Rover to achieve zero waste and the desire to make society more secure and healthy, and the environment – eco-friendly. Recognizing the need to adapt their products and services to fit the needs of a rapidly changing world, the company is making a major effort to achieve zero emissions, accidents and congestion in the future.
