Emission Parts Recycling Provides Sustainability and Revenue Opportunity for Volvo Truck Dealers
Oakland, CA, January 30, 2018 – Red Fox Resources® is pleased to announce a partnership with Volvo Trucks North America (VTNA) to provide Volvo truck dealers with a program to recycle used emission control parts. This program allows Volvo dealers to recycle scrap emission cores, such as diesel particulate filters (DPFs) and diesel oxidation catalysts (DOCs). Red Fox Resources purchases scrap/used emission control systems from the dealer and reclaims the catalyst material for re-use.
“Red Fox is pleased to partner with Volvo Trucks and their extensive dealer network to recycle DPFs and DOCs. Recycling parts that would otherwise be scrapped or thrown away provides a simple pathway to both revenue and sustainable business practices.”– Brad Edgar, CEO Red Fox Resources
With over 260 dealer locations in North America, the volume of recycled catalyst cores from the Volvo dealer body represents a significant amount of catalyst material to be reclaimed and returned to the production stream. The parts are dismantled into their core components and recycled in a sustainable manner such that value is maximized and little or no material is sent to a landfill.
The new program was communicated to the Volvo Trucks dealer network on January 24th, 2018. Less than a week into the program a Volvo dealer in San Diego, CA has shipped a load of parts for recycling to Red Fox and earned $1,938.
“The partnership with Red Fox makes great sense for our dealers as it offers a simple process to recycle used catalyst parts in an environmentally sustainable manner while also generating additional revenues.” – Brandon Page, Powertrain & Overhaul Product Manager, Volvo Trucks North America
