Long service life left in used parts
Materials and components come directly from our advanced recycling facility Stena Nordic Recycling Center in Halmstad.
The recycled plastic is of a very high quality. We have also discovered that lots of components taken from discarded electrical appliances have a long service life left. Of all the vacuum cleaner motors tested in the project, the majority had 80 percent service life left. Cord reels and indicators for vacuum cleaner bags are examples of other components that can often be reused.
Developed and assembled in Sweden
The team behind this successful project includes sustainability experts, engineers and product designers. Both the production of new parts from recycled plastic and the assembly of the entire vacuum cleaner have taken place in Sweden.
The plan now is to test the model to optimize its functionality and service life in everyday use. It has already undergone the same laboratory tests as mass-produced vacuum cleaners, which has given us important insights.
We have reached the first goal of our journey towards 100%. Stay tuned for the sequel!
The entire vacuum cleaner is made from recycled plastic from post-consumer products and re-used parts.
