Airbus launches first global aircraft recycling project in southwest China

Airbus has unveiled its first global aircraft recycling project, named Airbus Lifecycle Services Centre (ALSC), in Chengdu, a major aviation hub in southwest China. As reported by Xinhua the mega project amounts to 6 billion yuan ($838 million) and targets to improve the recycling rate of aircraft components and materials, so that over 90% of an aircraft by weight can be recycled. The project which sits on a land spanning over 60 hectares is set to provide resale of reusable parts from retired aircraft. According to Airbus China CEO George Xu, ALSC is capable of handling a wide array of mainstream aircraft types and providing global distribution channels for the reusable parts. “The opening of ALSC will become a new highlight in deepening cooperation between China and Europe,” said George Xu, Airbus executive vice president and Airbus China CEO.
