Abstract

At 605,156 units, Malaysia recorded the highest sales in passenger car market in 2010. It provided a very strong positive impact to the local automotive manufacturers like Proton and Perodua which monopolized approximately 60% of the Total Industry Volume (TIV). However, the global paradigm-shift towards environmental sustainability also played a significant role in ensuring the sector remains strong and competitive. The trend in the global automotive industry today has led to considerations for green design concept cars. Recently, remanufacturing activity is known to be more profitable and able to minimize the negative impacts of end of life vehicle to the environment. Since remanufacturing is a relatively new industry in Malaysia, it is essential to develop and gather good knowledge and information from the appropriate parties such as Proton, Perodua, Honda and Toyota as well as government agencies or enforcement authorities such as MITI & JPJ including small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) such as Motor Teknologi & Industri Sdn Bhd (MTI). By using a survey questionnaire as the methodology tool, this study is developed with the hope that ample knowledge and information could be collected and further analyzed. Results from the study would be channelled as a tool to contribute towards research activities in the Malaysian automotive industry with regards to environmental impact from product remanufacturing.
