6 Volga Under Press

Volga Under Press

Posted on August 14, 2012 by team

All cars in Russia used to decay underground or in backyards. Then somebody started to disassemble them and sell their parts. But now car producers are obliged to care about utilization and such shops started to be opened.

This one is on the Pacific coast of Russia.

They have a lot of used cars here

This “Volga” is about to end its life

Some workers disassemble the car sorting its components.

Iron, plastic and rubber details are recycled separately.

But 10-15 % of the car cannot be recycled, they are sent to a solid domestic waste landfill.

The enterprise can utilize 3-5 cars a day

Its clients are mainly state structures and big companies having large autoparks.

But what should private owners do with their cars? Only to leave them under the open sky…

Though there is a special project letting drivers leave old tires at tire fitting shops.

Thus, tires can become a decoration at children playgrounds, for example.

Iron and plastic are to be pressed

Removing the wheels

The enterprise recycles 7-10 tons a day. Soon they will receive new equipment that will enable them to recyle twice more. The process consists of some stages: a cord is separated, everything is crumbled up: textile, metal chips and rubber. Then this rubber is used for coating of children playgrounds.

Maybe it’s not the worst path for a car – from roads to playgrounds?

    The funny part of all of the recycling brainwashing movement is plastic bottles… Millions upon millions of plastic bottles, plastic everything and the eco-nuts don’t say a word. And it is made from OIL the most evil word to a environmental tree hugger…

      Recycling brainwashing, eco-nuts, tree huggers… How would you call the category you fit in?

      I think you’ll find it was the environmentalists who first highlighted the dangers of plastic bottles – or, more accurately, the tiny chips of plastic that bottles degrade into, creating ‘plastic oceans’.

      Car recycling is a great idea, but on my recent trip to Russia, I saw that there was a lot more Russia could recycle! So many old pieces of equipment are left lying around.
