AFRA Launches New Best Practices Guide for Recycling Aircraft Materials


The Aircraft Fleet Recycling Association (AFRA) has published its new Best Management Practice (BMP) Guide for the recycling of aircraft materials. The association also announced the first AFRA accreditations under the new BMP of ELG Metals (Los Angeles) and Huron Valley Fritz West (Tucson). The new guide provides practical solutions for all those working in the field of aircraft parts and materials recycling, and the accompanying AFRA audit and accreditation program assures that the facilities operate in a safe and environmentally responsible fashion. Aircraft recyclers represent a growing proportion of AFRA membership. The


organization says this new guide will help them capture maximum value from aircraft which have reached the end of revenue service, by increasing the amounts of materials that can be recycled and raising the overall residual value of the high-grade materials used in aircraft manufacturing.


The new guide has been developed by AFRA members whose business span the commercial aircraft life cycle, from original equipment manufacturing, through maintenance, leasing and operations, on to end-of-service disassembly, parts recovery and aircraft materials recycling. The publication collates industry best practice. “We are extremely proud of our new guide. It is a perfect example of industry taking the initiative in addressing the important issues which face the aircraft end-of-life industry,” AFRA’s Executive Director Martin Fraissignes says. “AFRA believes the new guide and its accompanying audit and accreditation program enables businesses to develop a more systematic and specialized approach to aircraft materials recycling, which leads to better segregation, separation, and resale of these expensive materials.”
