Abstract This article presents the activities of an innovative and modern French automobile dismantling company handling approximately 25 vehicles each day according to a well-defined sequence of steps: ensuring safety, removing pollutants (recovering gasoline, oil, refrigerants) and dismantling par se. This emerging branch of activity fills the need specified in regulations concerning the recycling of materials, introducing an industrial approach into what is still largely an unorganized sector.
