DALIAN -- Volkswagen AG says it has opened a plant in China to reprocess 15,000 engines a year to reclaim usable components.
VW and its partner, China FAW Group Corp., have invested 10.9 million euros (100 million yuan) in the facility.
According to Volkswagen, 70 percent of an engine's materials can be reused.
The Dalian plant is Volkswagen's first engine reprocessing facility located outside Germany. VW plans to expand the plant to handle transmissions too.
