Recycling of automotive parts

Recycling plants for automotive parts

Whenever metal is involved, the ANDRITZ Recycling technology can prove its strengths.

Obtaining the rubber from used tires, the metals from oil filters and catalytic converters, the aluminum from wheel rims and engine blocks or the steel springs from seats – ANDRITZ recycling technology offers the right solution for any situation.

1) Recycling of used tires

The objective of tire recycling is to break down the used tires into their individual components – rubber, steel wire and textiles. ANDRITZ Recycling plants recover the raw materials in a multi-stage recycling process that achieves highest levels of purity.



  • Car tires
  • Truck tires
  • Agricultural tires


  • Tire shreds
  • Rubber granules / powder
  • Steel wire / textile fluff


2) Recycling of oil filters

The objective of oil filter recycling is to win back clean fractions of ferrous metals and oil for reselling. First, extraneous material has to be sort out from the infeed. After that the oil filters are shredded with the Universal Granulator UG. Iron, oil and paper are cleanly separated. The oil is pumped down and stored separately.
