Stellantis, Valeo Launch Remanned Windshield-Mounted Camera

The collaboration focuses on expanding both companies' remanufactured product ranges with an emphasis on electrification and ADAS.

Stellantis N.V. and Valeo have launched a remanufactured automotive video camera, an advancement in both companies’ circular economy efforts. This initiative, originating from Valeo’s Circular Electronics Lab in Nevers, France, aims to conserve natural resources while delivering economic benefits.

Aiming for carbon net-zero by 2038, Stellantis sees circular economy strategies, particularly remanufacturing, as vital. Remanufacturing restores used products to their original functionality, offering the same quality and warranty as new parts. This process is integral to both companies’ sustainable practices.

Valeo, with over four decades of experience in remanufacturing, produces various mechanical products like starters and alternators. The company plans to double its current annual capacity of one million remanufactured products by 2030.

Stellantis, under its SUSTAINera label, provides an array of remanufactured automotive spare parts, including 13,000 parts across 37 product lines, such as high-voltage batteries for electric vehicles. Valeo holds an extensive portfolio among Stellantis’ remanufacturing suppliers, spanning six product families.

The collaboration between the two companies focuses on expanding their product range, with an emphasis on remanufacturing innovations in electrification and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).

In 2022, Valeo’s lab in Nevers adopted a novel approach to remanufacturing, enabling fast product development and delivery, the company said. Its first collaborative product, a remanufactured video camera, uses up to 99% fewer natural resources than new cameras. Stellantis is the first automaker to offer this camera in its aftersales services, incorporating it into its SUSTAINera REMAN range.

Stellantis has also introduced sustainable packaging for remanufactured parts, with Valeo being the first to adopt this eco-friendly packaging for the remanufactured cameras. This initiative aligns with upcoming EU regulations, using recycled materials and avoiding plastic bags.

Both companies recognize the importance of skilled labor in advancing circular economy practices. They are committed to employee development, as seen in the Circular Electronics Lab in Nevers and Stellantis’ SUSTAINera Circular Economy Hub in Italy, the companies said.

Alison Jones, senior vice president of global circular economy at Stellantis, said, “This is a great example of Stellantis and Valeo delivering new remanufacturing products through collaborative supplier-customer development for a sustainable future. We are committed to achieving our carbon net-zero challenge, ensuring sustainability for our customers, employees, company, and planet.”

Mino Yamamoto, circular economy director at Valeo Group, added: “Valeo is continuously pushing boundaries to develop innovative solutions that promote the circular economy. With the upskilling of our employees and successful collaboration with Stellantis, we are proud to expand our Reman range with the first remanufactured video cameras.”
