An international consortium of European, U.S., Korean, Japanese and Malaysian manufacturers produced a computer program specially designed to optimize and facilitate the dismantling of End of Life Vehicles (ELV): The International Dismantling Information System (IDIS).
This program allows one to edit dismantling manuals and provides,
amongst other things: •
Instructions on the most efficient way to dismantle the various
components of an ELV. •
Information on equipment / tools to be used. •
Information about the materials that make up each component in
order to facilitate proper separation and progress towards recovery.
Currently the database contains data on 61 makes, 799 models and 1660 variants. It is updated periodically as new models
of vehicles are marketed.
