automotive shredder residue
After disposal of fuel, oil and other liquids by end-of-life vehicle dismantlers, the engines, transmission, tires, batteries and other parts are separated, and the remaining bodies and other parts are dispatched to a shredding facility. They are turned into shredder residue after steel and nonferrous metal particles are separated out for recycling. Recycling technology for this residue is now under development.

The ratio of successfully connected calls to attempted calls (also called Call Completion Rate). ASRs vary by routes. A typical ASR to Pakistan is lower than that of Germany. Reasons for this include the quality of the network and the fact that its less likely that a call to Pakistan will encounter a device such as an answering machine.
(Answer-Seizure Ratio) The ratio of successfully connected calls to attempted calls (also called 'Call Completion Rate').
