It offers a comprehensive account of the automobile recycling systems in developed country vis-a-vis the current scenario in developing nations. The book also presents a future roadmap for the country.
"India is currently the world's largest manufacturer of two-wheelers and fourth largest in production of cars. It is well on the way to meet the automotive mission plan 2016-26 of tripling output within a decade", Ram said.
"The informal industry for scrapping old vehicles, located in crowded residential areas, have neither the capacity nor the capability to tackle the huge increase in end-of-life vehicles which will be generated in near future," he added.
