Ireland Meets ELV Target 2018
Target Success! We are delighted to share that Ireland has met target for 2018 under the ELV Directive.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) yesterday released the draft figures for 2018 in which Ireland met and exceeded the annual 85% reuse and recycling and 95% reuse, recycling and recovery targets for End-of-Life Vehicles. This makes 2018 the first year the national targets were met since they were raised in 2015.
The ELVES Network have contributed significantly to this achievement with over 70% of CoDs processed through member ATFs. This national success follows the ELVES Network having met the higher targets in 2017. 2020 is ELVES fourth year of operation and the team look forward to continuing to have a positive impact on ELV processing in Ireland.

ELVES hosted three Safe Handling of Electric and Hybrid Vehicle training sessions last week in Cork, Monaghan and Kildare. Congratulations to all the participants who received their certificate.
The EPA has released the latest analysis on the 2017 ELV (End-of-Life Vehicle) data and has revealed a significant 43% increase in ELV’s treated, compared to the previous year – over 140,000 being recycled in 2017. The data also shows the country has achieved a rate of 85.9% reuse and recycling and 94.6% if you include recovery in the processing of these ELVs.
