Environment and Recycling

Abstract

Environmental friendliness and recyclability are essential factors today. This White Paper details the
standards to which Sense-WARE Flame Detectors and accessories comply.

Problem Statement

Environment and recyclability are important factors in modern product design and manufacturing. Both are both important for the compliance of the manufacturer and of the user of the equipment.

Background

This paper gives a brief summary on how Sense-WARE compliesto regulations for there striction of chemicals and the recyclability of its products.
