The restoration of Mercedes-Benz remanufactured parts saves not only costs, but also huge amounts of energy and raw materials compared with new parts. This allows us to save thousands of tons of raw materials and tens of thousands of megawatt hours of electricity every year.*
How much exactly? The independent testing organization TÜV Süd has verified this and prepared a life cycle assessment**. Compared with the production of a new part, the remanufacturing of a single OM906 diesel engine saves 527 kg of carbon dioxide and 7.248 MJ of energy. In other words: These energy savings alone could operate a laptop for 1.2 years.
* Savings referring to the remanufacturing of parts.
