Mercedes-Benz Progresses to EIA Report Stage for Shanghai Reman Plant

Duxes 7th China Remanufacturing Summit 2017

June 28-29, 2017 · Crowne Plaza Beijing Chaoyang U-Town, China

Mercedes-Benz’s proposed remanufacturing plant for the Shanghai Lingang Remanufacturing Industry Demonstration Zone (SLRIDZ), has advanced to the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) stage. Mercedes-Benz’s parent company Daimler, had agreed to construct the remanufacturing facility in December 2015. The project will remanufacture recovery engines, gearboxes, auto parts and lithium batteries for the Mercedes-Benz authorized dealer network, and is scheduled for completion in 2018.

The plant will cover more than 52,000 square meters, with a total investment in excess of 638 million RMB, and an estimated remanufacturing and recycling capacity of 4200 automobile engines, and 8600 units of transmission recovery. The auto component recycling capacity will be 56500 units (including 17,217 sets of electronic hydraulic control units for in-plant processing; other navigation control modules and air conditioning compressors recycling and remanufacturing will be outsourced, and the whole process will not be completed in the plant). The Lithium battery production will be 24699 units (sets) (only the replacement of battery cores, not related to battery production).

Daimler-Benz’s investment constitutes a major commitment to remanufacturing and the Chinese market. In 2015, Daimler-Benz sold a record number of cars, with sales in China surging by 32.6%, making China its largest individual market. Daimler-Benz has supported remanufacturing as a cost-effective, environmental friendly process; the new facility in Lingang will also allow it to implement quality and brand control, while also expanding remanufacturing capacity.

The announcement of the EIA further bolsters Lingang Zone’s claim as a hub for the remanufacturing industry in China. More than 20 companies have already set up shop, among them, domestic and international automotive, electric, and heavy duty parts and components remanufacturing OEMs. With the expected ability to import cores into Lingang in 2018, and the Daimler-Benz news, the area figures to be a magnet for import and export in the industry.
