Present in over 118 countries, the Renault group designs, manufactures and sells three different brands of vehicles: Renault, Dacia and Renault Samsung Motors, capable of responding to mobility needs and adapted to the specific characteristics of its different markets.

For Renault, it is not enough to design cars of the highest quality that respond to its customers’ expectations, at the highest level of global competitiveness; these cars must also be designed with a view to reducing their environmental footprint throughout their life cycle… This notably involves optimising the use of resources, as well as planning a second life for cars from the design phase.


Synova is a recognised player in the end-of-life plastics processing sector, restoring the original characteristics of these plastics.


A world leader in its field, Duesmann specialises in the recycling and recovery of precious metals (platinum, palladium and rhodium) from end-of-life automotive catalysts.

The diversity of issues relating to car recycling (management-distribution, decontamination, dismantling, recycling, sale of second-hand spare parts, etc.) requires a broad range of complex expertise. By uniting four complementary business hubs, INDRA operates at all levels to resource the automotive sector:

– Engineering of management, treatment and recycling processes, development of IT solutions for the administrative management of ELVs, organisation of dismantling processes and early identification of second-hand spare parts for marketing purposes.

– Management-distribution of ELVs to benefit the manufacturers, insurers, the State, local authorities and even individuals, through its 378 approved ELV centres.

– Dismantling/recycling: dismantling and recycling operations are partly carried out in its own sites, to guarantee compliance with environmental standards.

– Sale of guaranteed second-hand spare parts: every store within the INDRA network distributes guaranteed reusable parts which have been dismantled on its sites.
