Tata Motors launched its third Registered Vehicle Scrapping Facility (RVSF), in Surat on Saturday.
The unit has a capacity to disassemble 15,000 end-of-life vehicles safely and sustainably each year.
Named Re.Wi.Re (Recycle With Respect), the facility is developed and operated by Tata Motors’ partner Shree Ambica Auto to scrap end-of-life passenger and commercial vehicles of all brands.
This launch follows the success of two other facilities in Jaipur and Bhubaneswar and marks another milestone for the company’s sustainable initiatives.
PB Balaji, group chief financial officer, Tata Motors, said: “Sustainability is our driving force and serves as our compass, guiding our vision and actions. With this we make great strides on a transformative journey towards responsible end-of-life vehicle scrapping.
“With our globally benchmarked recycling processes, we aim to minimise waste. We are confident that these decentralised facilities will benefit our customers, foster economic growth, generate employment opportunities and fulfil the need of eco-friendly vehicle scrapping.”
Re.Wi.Re. is purpose-built for dismantling end-of-life passenger and commercial vehicles with a focus on employing environmentally friendly practices. Additionally, there are dedicated stations for the safe dismantling of various components, including tyres, batteries, fuel, oils, liquids and gases.
