GKN develops and produces new driveshafts and systems for the Original Equipment Manufacturers, but also takes back cores from the workshops. These are professionally remanufactured according to OE standards for use in the automotive aftermarket. All usable parts of the cores are checked, cleaned, regenerated and mounted. Residual materials will be disposed of according to existing environmental regulations and laws.
GKN is studying possibilities to collect and recycle grease from cores during the remanufacturing process. At GKN Driveline Ribemont, France, this process generates 60 tons of grease which have to be disposed.
