Careful and controlled reprocessing is the key to SEG's success in "rejuventaing" the many different materials that arise during the demanufacture of end-of-life refrigerator and freezer appliances.

On this page we list all the materials and components which can be recovered during the appliance recycling process:

Products recovered during Step 1

  • Refrigerant (CFC, substitutes)
  • Ammonia-water mixture
  • Oil
  • Compressors
  • Glass plate
  • Cable
  • Capacitors / mercury switches

Products recovered during Step 2

  • Metals
  • Plastics mixtures
  • Polyurethane (PU)
  • Propellant insulation (VFC, VHC)
