We recover the materials from vehicles at the end of their life and transform them to supply the production of new vehicles.
Groupe Renault has co-developed with suppliers a unique fabric made from 100% recycled materials
We recover vehicles at the end of their life and mechanical parts to repair in the commercial network, this prolongs the life of vehicles in circulation. With different components of broken engines, the Choisy site re-manufactures them to propose new engines using a standard exchange system.
