REPAIR AND RECYCLE TO AVOID WASTING
Every year in Europe more than 2.5 billion tons of waste are produced, only 38% of which is recycled. A definitely unsustainable scenario that requires the adoption of a circular economy aimed at reducing the environmental impact: repairing or replacing faulty or worn components allows to extend the life of products, avoiding the production of new waste. Moreover, recycling materials at the end of their life reduces greenhouse gas emissions and the pressure on the environment due to the continuous processes of extraction and use of raw materials.
Designing products plays a key role in avoiding unnecessary use of resources and excessive waste production: it should provide the basis for long product life, while ensuring that the product can be repaired in case of damage and recycled at the end of its life cycle.
Modular equipment with components that are easy to replace and spare parts that are always available are essential conditions for allowing products to be restored to proper working conditions if necessary: designing them so that they can be easily disassembled when necessary is fundamental for repairing or replacing components. Similarly, the fact that components can be easily disassembled should also be considered during the design phase in order to encourage the differentiation of materials and consequently their recycling.
Since its foundation Filmop has always paid special attention to product design, investing in research and development to be able to offer highly functional and sustainable solutions at the same time. The result is a wide range of modular products for professional cleaning, whose components can be easily disassembled to be repaired or replaced as needed, ensuring a long life cycle. In addition, Filmop products are made of easily detachable materials, thus allowing complete recycling at the end of their life.
