Both in Serbia and region and throughout Europe the increasing number of ELVs (end of life vehicle) is a significant issue. Motor vehicles are one of the greatest polluters of the Earth, starting from the production process to the end of their life cycle.

Because of that, quality ELV recycling is imposing as a vital need. Besides that, ELV recycling is part of the system of sustainable techno-economic development in EU. Adequate detoxification is prerequisite for quality recycling of ELV.

In the function of all mentioned, paper shows comparative techno economic parameters of some technologies that are used for ELV detoxification in Serbia and Europe. Those parameters are used for multicriteria AHP (Analytic Hierarchy Process) method in the aim of appropriate choice of optimal technology for ELV detoxification.
