Removing hazardous substances from large domestic appliances

REMONDIS Electrorecycling has dismantling lines for treating all types and all models of large domestic appliances across the whole of Europe

  • Recycling of large domestic appliances

    • REMONDIS Electrorecycling is also the first port of call for distributors looking for expert advice on recycling large domestic appliances. No matter whether it has to do with dishwashers, washing machines, oil radiators or other types of large domestic appliances: we ensure they are all processed and recycled in accordance with the law.

    • Once the large domestic appliances have been dismantled, they are freed of any contaminants and pre-sorted into different fractions. The valuable raw materials are then recovered during the shredder process

  • Collaboration with shredder businesses

    Whilst specialist processing technology is needed to dismantle fridges and freezers – e.g. to extract refrigerants and blowing agents – this is not the case with large domestic appliances. When we receive this category of WEEE, therefore, we normally simply remove the hazardous components by hand and then send the appliances – freed of their hazardous parts – to “special” shredder businesses for further processing. To be able to do this, we work together with a number of metal processors – both internal and external firms.

  • Our treatment process

    • Input: large domestic appliances
    • Treatment: removal of components as listed in Schedule 3 of the ‘ElektroG’ (Federal Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act), decontamination and pre-sorting of fractions, transfer of the appliances (without hazardous parts) to shredder businesses or metal processors where the recyclable materials are recovered
    • Output: various metals (ferrous, non-ferrous), shredder lightweight fraction (SLF)
