In Seville, Renault Group sets up a Refactory for its activities in Spain

In Seville, November 5, 2021 – in the presence of Juan Manuel Moreno, President of the Andalusia region, Renault Group officially launched a Refactory project at the Seville plant. As an extension of the programme implemented at Flins (Yvelines, France), which remains the Group's circular economy strategic hub for Europe, this new Refactory will bring together circular economy activities for Spain based on the vehicle's value potential at each stage of its life cycle.

José Vicente de los Mozos, EVP Industry, Renault Group, said: "One year after the launch of the Refactory in Flins, which we are about to celebrate the first anniversary, this project illustrates the Group's strong ambitions in terms of the quality and sustainability of its products in order to meet the challenges of the ecological transition and the issues of more sustainable consumption. Thanks to their competitiveness, our Flins and Seville plants are now demonstrating their ability to invent a new profitable industry model for more sustainable mobility”.

In order to convert the potential value generated by the circular economy into a growth lever, the Seville Refactory will be structured around four areas of activity, from maintenance to recycling, in order to support the entire life of the vehicle:

  • Re-Trofit: reconditioning of used vehicles.
  • Re-Energy: repairing and developing applications for batteries in second life such as energy storage.
  • Re-Cycle: for recycling, resource management and the manufacture of E-Tech gearboxes.
  • Re-Start: a training and R&D centre dedicated to the circular economy.

The Refactory in Seville will be rolled-out between 2022 and 2024 and will cover a built-up area of 5,000m2 at the end of the project. The Re-Trofit division will start operations at the end of 2022, with the capacity to refurbish more than 10,000 vehicles and repair up to 1,000 batteries per year by 2025.

This announcement is part of the industrial plan for the Group's Spanish plants, presented last March for 2021-2024. This plan includes the allocation of five new vehicles and a new family of engines for the Castilla y León plants. The plant in Seville will handle the manufacture of two new models of electrified gearboxes for the Group's hybrid vehicles.
