The shell is made out of iron which is a good, solid and easy material to maintain. Iron has been recycled for hundreds of years and there are two major benefits to reusing the iron. The need for new iron from nature is diminishing and the iron industry needs less energy to produce the iron. It is easy to mix with other metals, making it suitable for many purposes.
Our iron part is made of stainless steel and is painted at a local supplier that is environmentally certified with ISO 14001.
Steel in itself is sustainable as it can be recycled forever.
However, it demands requirements on how the suppliers works to produce it, weather green energy has been used (or in other ways tried to save energy), how they get rid of the waste in connection to production. If the supplier does not follow procedures for recycling and waste management, a lot of
sustainability of the material is lost. Therefore, we have set up requirements for our suppliers to document their procedures for recycling.
