JLR to use recycled materials for its entire vehicle range
Jaguar Land Rover has issued a statement saying it would soon make components manufactured from recycled plastics available in its entire model range. The ChemCycling project is a joint enterprise with BASF, and the companies are already running tests of the new tech.
According to JLR, the innovative recycling approach involves a number of complex processes and yields pyrolytic oil, whose qualities are similar to those of natural oil. This enables production of high-grade secondary plastics that are not inferior to their primary counterparts in any respect.
The company says the new materials are especially good for dashboard and exterior trim elements. Furthermore, one of the Jaguar I-Pace prototypes already sports a radiator grille made of ChemCycling plastic.
