Dutch to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Automotive / Cars & Trucks / (post-)shredder technology, recycling
Dutch term or phrase:indirecte selectie
"Zestig procent [van alle autowrakken uit een shredderproef] is direct geselecteerd op model... De overige veertig procent is via *indirecte selectie* samengesteld. Daarbij gaat het om indeling volgens de klassen A-B (kleine auto’s), C-D (middenklassers) en E-F (grotere modellen)."
This term appears in an interview regarding post-shredder technology. I've found this collocation on the Net, but it is mainly associated with animals! In the recycling industry does one simply refer to 'indirect selection' or is there a better translation? RSVP. TIA. Cheers, Rob.
