Environmental information

Electrical Act

Information on § 17 ElektroG (take-back obligations for distributors):

We have neither sales areas nor storage and shipping areas for electrical and electronic equipment with at least 400 square meters each. We therefore have no take-back obligation pursuant to Section 17 (1) ElektroG. We also do not take back old appliances voluntarily. Please contact your city or local government to find out about free return options for old appliances in your area.

 

Information according to § 18 ElekroG (information for private households):

The symbol of the crossed-out trash can on an electrical or electronic device indicates that it must not be disposed of with household waste at the end of its service life. Collection points for used electrical and electronic equipment are available in your area for free return. You can obtain the addresses from your city or local government. You can also contact us to find out about other return options we have set up. The separate collection of WEEE is intended to enable the reuse, recycling or other forms of recovery of waste equipment, as well as to avoid negative consequences on the environment and human health when disposing of hazardous substances that may be contained in the equipment. You are responsible for deleting any personal data that may be present on the waste equipment to be disposed of. Further information

 

Battery law

Information according to § 18 BattG (information for end users):

The symbol of the crossed-out dustbin on batteries or accumulators indicates that they must not be disposed of with household waste at the end of their service life. If batteries or accumulators contain mercury, cadmium or lead, you will find the respective chemical symbol (Hg, Cd or Pb) below the symbol of the crossed-out trash can. You are legally obliged to return old batteries and accumulators. You can do this free of charge in a retail store or at another collection point near you. Addresses of suitable collection points can be obtained from your city or local government. Further information

 

Waste Management Officer

Information on § 2 AbfBeauftrV (obligation to appoint a waste representative):

With regard to our producer obligations to take back old electrical or electronic equipment, old batteries and old packaging, we have commissioned suitable third parties, each of which already has its own waste officer. Insofar as we voluntarily take back other waste fractions, the calendar-yearly limits pursuant to Section 2 (2) (i) of the Waste Management Ordinance (AbfBeauftrV) are not exceeded. There is therefore no obligation to appoint a company waste representative pursuant to § 2 AbfBeauftrV.

DRONIQlive: How the inspection of wind turbines with a drone works

The inspection of wind turbines is crucial to ensure their performance and safety. However, traditional methods are often costly, time-consuming and sometimes even dangerous for maintenance personnel. This is where drones come in as an innovative solution. 

In the next edition of our DRONIQlive webinar, we will discuss exactly how drone flights of wind turbines work and what is important in terms of hardware and software.
