Top Green, Embraco’s compressor recycling program at our Brazilian plant, is a voluntary action to support environmental preservation.
Compressors are regarded as scrap after its useful life is exhausted, which ranges from 12 to 15 years on average. With Top Green, the raw materials of the shell are recycled, and EMBRACO provides proper disposal of the engine. (or remaining materials)
Since the program began in 2000, we have recycled 1,350,000 units in Brazil alone. Top Green underscores our support of environmental preservation and sustainable use of resources. The program also helps to prevent materials from being launched into the environment without proper treatment. Read more about Green Operation
