Want to know how much of your new Volvo truck is made from old one’s?
A truck straight off the factory assembly line may not be quite as new as it seems. One-third of the vehicle’s total weight consists of recycled metals. At least this is the case with Volvo Trucks. The Swedish manufacturer’s production system embraces the recycling of old trucks, whereby old becomes new in a sustainable process that benefits both economy and ecology. At the Volvo Truck Center just outside Göteborg, trucks are dismantled down to their last nuts and bolts and their materials recycled.
