We encourage our customers to return end-of-life LED displays to our manufacturing facility, hereby closing the loop of the circular business model. The modular design allows the materials to be segregated very easy, facilitating the recycling process of our end-of-life products. Q-lite also offers the possibility to upgrade and resell the display on the market, depending on the condition of the product. The Display as a Service model automatically finds its way back to Q-lite at the end-of-life stage and will be recycled entirely.
Displays in a good condition will be refurbished, increasing the lifespan of the product. Additionally, the software and control systems will be updated in order for the displays to be connected to the newest technologies.
Certain types of displays are provided with the function to adapt the resolution of the display by means of a software modification. This enables full colour displays to be upgraded without the need to change the LED’s. Reconstruction of displays for new applications is another possibility for example text displays can be given a second life as scoreboard.
End-of-life products will be disassembled at Q-lite. The first separation of materials takes place internally. And as a next step the different waste flows will be recycled by our waste processors and suppliers. In the future we aim to outsource this process or keep it in house by employing people who are at a distance to the labour market.
Recycling of the waste flows takes places in the following countries:
