Codes of Conduct for F-Gases

With this initiative, APPLiA members aspire to contribute to improving WEEE treatment by encouraging the on-going productive dialogue with recyclers, providing them with useful information and indications on the future needs of recycling technologies, while sending a positive signal to the market.

Arçelik, BSH, Candy, Electrolux, LG, Miele, Panasonic, Samsung, Vestel and Whirlpool, as of January 2019, the home appliance industry in Europe starts using marking for F-gas technology. 

The identification will be placed on the back of heat pump tumble dryers, washing machines, washer dryers and dishwashers containing F-gases and will be providing key information on critical materials in products. The markings will better enable the visual identification for sorting of certain types of large appliances for proper treatment, forward indications of future needs of recycling technologies and the appropriate safety and security of the recycling plants and workers.
