LCA studies

How much we can save by recycling

LCA studies show the conservation of specific materials. Results of the assessment clearly indicate that by recycling people can do their part to save resources that are starting to become scarce in the world.

5 158 t

Last year, residents handed over the ASEKOL SK Compliance Scheme almost 5 158 tonnes of electrical and electronic equipment for recycling.

3 520 878 l

Recycling of 3 750 tonnes of electrical and electronic equipment (TV, monitors and small appliances) in 2014 helped to save a total of 3,52 million litres of crude oil.

Such a quantity of oil would be enough for 1,5 trips around the equator by aircraft.

59 667 MWh

Take-back resulted in electricity savings of 59 667 MWh, which could keep all the households in Topoľčany running for 12 months.

12 137 kg CO2

Take-back resulted in a decrease in production of carbon dioxide by 12 137 kg, as much as would be produced by driving from Bratislava to Košice 184 times.
