Whereas the motor car is generally considered to be environmentally harmful, this does not apply to the automobile works. In this case the ground and the water are more threatened. Nonetheless, not only must, in
any way suspicious waste, but also harmless waste be avoided. Since any type of waste, which was once a raw material, after its disposal through incineration, (e.g., as filter dust from the incineration plants) is
irretrievaby lost. For this reason, waste should be recycled or better still, avoided completely. For the latter, synthetics are a good example, they can be completely degraded and through different markings, can be
channeled directly back into the production process.

|Immission||Influence of a substance|
In the automoblie industry, a large number of materials requiring supervision are used. If these were not collected by specially qualified operations, each one would need a 'proof of disposal document'. This would be
accompanied by a (for the producer mandatory) consignment note, which follows the substance from its origin to its disposal.
All together, all environmentally hazardous substances are divided into classes according to the degree of the danger emanating from them. Each has a code-number which enables them to be clearly identified.
Thereby, one may sometimes be surprised, e.g., to learn that petrol is more dangerous to the ground-water than Diesel fuel is. 08/11
