End-of-life vehicles or ELVs As part of my communication course, we (4 team members and myself) are supposed to select a topic, study it and some certain aspect of it for 18 weeks (one whole semester) and come up with a recommendation report and finally a multimedia presentation to persuade an audience about the problem with our topic and that the recommendations that we've come up with is/are the best solution(s). (Bored already? :zzz: :tongue2: ) The topic we've chosen is managing ELVs in the city we live in, Abu Dhabi U.A.E. A big problem we will be facing in the future is obtaining information from the government here about ELVs and how they are managed. We have a huge industrial site with thousands of second-hand part car dealers which we are willing to interview to obtain some, if any, information from them. Plus, the government here is really discreet and will not give off information and is not available anywhere online. I'd like some input from you guys if possible about what exact approach you would find more appealing to the topic and any other approaches. We are still in the beginning stages of the research/project, we are now looking up literature about the current advances being carried out in the US, Europe, Japan and China. Our instructor, suggests concentrating on the literature from European sources, since as she says: "...the people in Europe are a bit more environment concerned than in the US and other places...". These are just a few of the approaches we have come up with: 1- Automotive shredder residue (ASR) and ELVs 2- Government imposed laws and legislations aout ELVs and the environment 3- Car usage and growth throughout the years and its impact on the environment 4- Improving ELV management 5- Imposing laws on car manufactures to create "recycable" parts (body parts and what not) About choice 5 i do believe this has started already Any feedback is appreciated.
