Made to be recycled
Approximately a third of the material that went into the production of your Volvo FE Hybrid comes from recycled materials. And when your truck has reached the end of its lifespan you can count on us to take care of the bits and pieces. 90 percent of your Volvo FE Hybrid can be recycled and all the plastic components weighing more than 50 grams are labelled for easy identification. The hybrid batteries will be taken back for re-use or recycling.
All the colours are green
Both the indoor and outdoor paint jobs as well as the frame coating of your Volvo FE Hybrid are a hundred percent solvent free. Volvo Trucks’ policy is to use water-based colours and powder coating, as opposed to more toxic solvent based alternatives.
Improving recycling all over the world
To improve waste management globally, Volvo Trucks has established a document called Dealer Operator Standard (DOS). DOS contains guidelines concerning waste management for Volvo Trucks’ 660 dealers and 1 550 workshops around the world. Also, we continuously carry out programs at dealers all over the world, to improve the environmental work in general and to adjust after the national rules and regulations in each country.
