Did you know stainless Steel is 100% recyclable? Some of its main components (chromium, nickel and molybdenum) can easily be separated from other materials, making the recycling process easy.Besides this, stainless steel is one of the least energy and resource intensive metals: being necessary to dig only up 2-5 lbs of ore for every 1 lb of iron and using only about 20-30 MJ/kg of embodied energy (according to an MIT study). And it isn't toxic, by itself.
PVD - The Green Coating Technology
When searching for a waterproof solution for our pieces’ coating, we focused on choosing the lowest environmentally impacting one. So, we are proud to be using PVD - Physical Vapor Deposition. When compared with other common options, like electroplating, painting and the traditional wet baths, PVD process does not create any of the hazardous waste.
Besides that, the colouring process does not limit the recycling value of stainless steel.
