“The circular economy by APPLiA Italia”

“We need an approach as a Circular Society to ensure effective Circular Economy”. It is an objective that companies in the household appliance sector face every day, giving life to a truly circular industry even before the concept of Circular Economy developed in the community: if given and treated correctly today it is possible to recover about 90% of the materials used in household appliances. To create a truly virtuous process, however, the commitment of all the players in the supply chain, producers, distributors, consumers, end-of-life operators and institutions is indispensable ”.
