In this document, the European Environmental Bureau (EEB) provides technical input and policy recommendations for the revision of the End-of-Life-Vehicles (ELVs) Directive, which aims to tackle the environmental impact of ELV treatment in and outside the EU.

ELVs amount to 8 million tonnes in the EU a year and raise several environmental challenges for EU governments. Large amounts of waste could be cut down if national authorities put in place the right policies, we argue in this paper.
