Eventually any appliance needs replacement and the old product must be disposed of in a responsible way. We use a lot of metals in our products. Metals can be recycled innumerous times and still be equally useable. All of them are originally extracted from the earth’s crust, and some are scarce. That is why recycling of metals becomes more and more important in order to protect nature.
We strive to get better insights on how to improve the recyclability on all our products. As an example, dismantling tests made on one of our heat pumps show that more than 99% of the materials in that product can be reused, recycled or incinerated for energy use. The ultimate long-term objective is to make that figure 100% for all our products.
