Volvo wants 25 percent recycled plastic in its cars by 2025

Volvo XC60 with recycled plastics

In an effort to minimise its global environment footprint, Volvo has announced that by 2025, at least 25% of the plastics used in every new Volvo vehicle will made from recycled material.

A move like this is not just environmentally friendly but also makes "business sense", Stuart Templar director for sustainability at Volvo Cars, said.

Volvo has decided it is aiming to have at least 25 per cent of the plastics in every newly launched Volvo created from recycled plastics by 2025.

Despite looking identical to the existing model, numerous SUV's plastic components have been replaced with equivalents containing recycled materials.

In sparsely Volvo XC60 Central tunnel made from recycled fibers discarded fishing nets and ropes and mats are made of a material, the basis for which was the bottle of thermoplastic material and trimming various old cotton goods.

"Volvo Cars is committed to minimizing its global environmental footprint", president and chief executive of Volvo Cars, Håkan Samuelsson, said.

Reuters reported that at least 25 percent of the plastics used in new Volvo vehicle models from 2025 will be from recycled materials, the Chinese-owned company said in an anti-pollution plan praised by the United Nations. "We need to see a situation in which plastic waste begins to have more value and the processes to transform it into something new will also advance". Ford has been using components made from EcoLon, a plastic derived from recycled carpet developed in 2009, for cylinder head covers for its Escape, Fusion, Mustang and F-150 models for years thanks to a partnership with Wellman Engineering Resins and Dana Cover.

The special XC60 was revealed at the Ocean Summit during the Gothenburg Volvo Ocean Race stopover. Hybrid crossover gets some items from recycled materials - plastic bottles. "This is proof that this problem can be solved by design and innovation".

It comes on the heels of Volvo's announcement last month that it would end the use of single-use plastics across all of its premises and events by the end of next year.

In 2017, the company announced an industry-leading commitment to electrify all new Volvo cars launched after 2019.

In terms of operations, Volvo Cars aims to have climate-neutral manufacturing operations by 2025. In January, it announced that the Skövde production site in Sweden had become carbon-neutral - something the brand hopes will be the case for all of its facilities by 2025.
