How to save CO2 emissions by buying a pre-owned machine
New process machines are made from raw stainless steel. The production of
raw steel consumes a huge amount of energy.
Raw steel is made from iron ore in blast furnaces. It can also be made from
scrap using electric arc furnaces.
Both processes need enormous amounts of enery resulting in large amounts of
CO2 and CH4 emissions.
In addition, the steel casting process into individual machine components is
also a very energy intensive process.
Finally, the formation of machine parts from steel sheets is less energy
intensive, but also adds CO2 emissions.
Overall, the emissions from the NEW machine manufacturing process are
When you buy a pre-owned machine from Foeth instead of a new one, you avoid
all these emissions.
