Mascot – Sustainability Statement
Mascot is a committed partner to sustainability and the environment. Mascot leads its industry in utilizing advanced technology for repurposing and recovery with the use of CNC machinery and OEM approved processes. Other benefits from remanufacturing are:
Energy Conservation: Automotive and truck parts are kept out of the resmelting process longer because of remanufacturing. As a result, millions of barrels of oil or comparable forms of energy are saved.
Raw Material Conservation: Remanufacturing gives a product numerous lives instead of just one, thereby saving on raw materials. Rebuilders annually save millions of tons of natural resources such as iron, aluminum, copper, etc.
Landfill Space Conserved: Landfills are spared from the dumping of of millions of tons of iron, aluminum, copper, etc., because of the monetary value the industry places on parts. This “core charge” ensures parts are returned to be rebuilt.
Air Pollution Reduce: Once again, keeping parts out of the resmelting process benefits the environment by reducing the air pollution that is generated by remelting.
Scientific Studies highlights these benefits as a standard across the remanufacturing industry.
» About 50% of the original part is recovered in the remanufacturing process. This can result in annual savings in the U.S. of 8.2 million gallons of crude oil from steel manufacturing, 51,500 tons of iron ore, and 6,000 tons of copper and other metals.
» Rebuilt truck parts require 50% of the energy and 67% of the labor that is required to produce new engines.
Studies by the Fraunhofer Institute in Stuttgart, Germany, demonstrated that:
» The yearly energy savings by remanufacturing worldwide equals the electricity generated by five nuclear power plants or 10,774,000 barrels of crude oil which corresponds to a fleet of 233 oil tankers.
» The yearly raw materials saved by remanufacturing worldwide would fill 155,000 railroad cars forming a train 1,1100 miles long.
