Airbus claims to have found ways to make aircraft end-of-life dismantling a greener and more profitable business. Administrators of the Pamela (an acronym that stands for process for advanced management of end-of-life aircraft) demonstrator project in Tarbes, southwest France, concluded that about 85 percent of the dry weight of an aircraft can be recycled, rather than the currently accepted maximum of 60 percent.

Now that the first Airbus aircraft built in the 1970s are reaching the end of their useful lives, for the first time in its history the company must consider a disposal strategy. Of course, salvage companies can do the job of tearing apart an airplane for recycling.
