Due to the scarcity of raw materials, the recycling of end-of-life vehicles is becoming increasingly important. The essential decision for the cycle of materials is made in the dismantling company which disassembles the vehicle parts and determines the further recycling path: reuse as a replacement part, specific substantial exploitation or exploitation by shredding. This decision is the central aspect of this paper, taking into account the economic aspects, the uncertainties of the market and the applicability of the method. Therefore a detailed cost analysis model is presented, including a method for prediction of the replacement part market. In addition an IT concept is presented to visualize the result of the analysis and support the decision making.
