Abstract
Electronics and microsystems are the driving force behind the global leadership of Europe's automotive industry. Today 90% of all innovations are directly or indirectly influenced by electronics. The currently most pressing technological task is the integration of sensors, actuators and electronics at minimal costs and with high reliability, the management tasks are the integration of environmental aspects into the design process, material content declaration, recycling concepts and strategies for the supply of spare part over a period of 20 years. Environmental impacts should be evaluated and reduced for the entire car-lifecycle, starting with material selection, production and ending with the use phase as well as the recycling. The monitoring and reporting of material contents and information on the recycling of products dominate environmental management in the automotive industry at present. Solution concepts for more efficient data handling are the IMDS reporting based on SAP R/3 and recycling passports. A high level recycling of automotive electronics offers the opportunity to solve an upcoming problem in automotive electronics. Producers have to build up spare part stocks for app. 20 years. Gathering electronic spare parts from the recycling process seems to be a more economical solution than stockbuilding or post sale production. Procedures for reverse logistics, methods for extrapolation of failures and concepts for a reliable estimation of the remaining life time of used parts have to be developed.
