service for industry
The principle of the circular economy is based on a near-closed cycle, from production to disposal and re-use of materials. With our over 25 years of experience in climate protection, UFH is the service provider to ensure that the different partners and systems work in a trouble-free chain. Promoting circular economy translates into better use of resources instead of depleting them further. Your contribution to proper disposal is a first step toward a sustainable future.
Only if defective electric appliances, batteries, lamps, etc. are collected and recycled professionally can they be reasonably reused. To make this as easy as possible, there are over 2 300 collection points across Austria. An efficient logistics system additionally provides a pick-up system for waste appliances from commercial enterprises.
What follows is a treatment process that takes place at the highest environmental standards. Together with its Austrian partners and a Europe-wide network, UFH takes care of a professional recycling process. Using the latest in equipment, UFH can today recycle over 90% of refrigerators – to name but one example. This careful recycling process yields high-quality raw materials, which are then offered for sale via the secontrade.com trading platform.
In a functioning circular economy, producers must also play a part. UFH supports many customers in their product development and design, the goal being to produce appliances that are easier to repair and with a considerably improved recyclability.
Thus, helped by our services, resource-efficient appliances are produced with a sustainable effect.
