Tech/Engineering / car recycling, waste disposal
German term or phrase: typenoffen
Hi everyone,
This is about car recycling.

"Firma X betreibt eine typenoffene Anlage und nimmt im Auftrag aller mengenrelevanten Kfz-Hersteller Altfahrzeuge vom Letztbesitzer an, um sie anschließend umweltgerecht trockenzulegen und zu demontieren."

Does this just mean that Firma X will take any end-of-life vehicle off your hands, not just certain makes?

Thanks for any ideas!
