    Abstract

    End-of-life vehicle (ELV) waste management and its immeasurable environmental impacts are the subjects of global concern. This study proposes a new concept of a processing framework to utilise ELV waste from automotive to construction industries by starting a new trend of circular economy applications to improve ELV recyclability. The research focuses on building a strong collaboration between automotive and construction industries to manage ELV waste in Malaysia. A systematic review approach based on classification and comparison methods was utilised to synthesise the findings through critical analysis. The concept was developed on the basis of existing ELV policies and legislation, processing framework, waste management and recycling possibilities for converting ELVs into building products. The findings corroborate that ELV waste in the dismantling and shredding operations can be utilised by the construction industry. The analysis and proposed framework established a source of information that provides a new paradigm for prioritising building product development and related policies in Malaysia. This research will provide a viable option for reducing the disposal problems and curbing the dependence on raw materials in Malaysia.
