Disposal of plastics
During the development of our products we strive to reduce the amount of plastics used for the component and its packaging to a minimum. Certain components have to be made from plastics and can not be replaced by a different material (seals, packaging for liquids etc.). This article provides information about the correct disposal of plastics.
The disposal of carbon differs from the disposal of regular plastics! Learn more about the disposal of carbon here:
