Aircraft Recycling in China

According to the Chinese state news agency Xinhua, aircraft now can be recycled at a new facility that became operational in June this year.

It is located in Harbin, capital of northeast China’s Heilongjiang province. The recycling and building base can handle 20 aircraft per year and the Aircraft Recycling International (ARI), a company headquartered in Hong Kong, financed it.

As reported, it will also manage and sell aircraft materials. Previously, mainly U.S. and European companies conducted the recycling of China’s aircraft. Furthermore, it was costly as well as time-consuming, a representative of Zhonglong Aircraft Disassembly Base Company, which operates the base, was cited.
