We are delighted to be shortlisted for the Green Alley Award amongst most innovative Circular Economy start-ups.
How much carbon emissions can we save?
Processing 50 flat screen TVs allows to avoid 1 tonne of CO2e emissions.
Our project aims to recognise these emissions savings through carbon credits:
1 tonne of avoided CO2e = 1 carbon credit
With one FPD PRO we are saving 10,000tonnes of carbon per year.

What is our mission?
We want to deliver fully automated recycling solutions that are
affordable, safe, environmentally friendly and profitable.
Why is it important?
According to UN report, each year over 54 million tonnes of e-waste (WEEE) is generated globally. 12.5% of the total WEEE are TVs & computer monitors (6.7 million tonnes) – that’s equivalent weight of 5,500 Eiffel Towers! Each year.
TVs & computer monitors waste contain many valuable in demand materials like steel, copper, indium, aluminium & plastics, but its complex composition and presence of toxic materials like mercury, lead, & arsenic makes it difficult to recycle, posing potential health risks & environmental pollution.
Unfortunately, what happens today is far from perfect – disposed TVs and monitors are often shredded or incinerated and valuable materials are lost, because disassembling them manually to recover as much as possible is slow, hazardous and too costly.
Recycling industry needs new solutions!
What’s our solution?
Robots and Data!- The future
Robots can perform tasks that are dangerous or difficult for humans, reducing the risk of exposure to toxic materials and injury to workers. They can process materials faster than humans and work for long periods of time, allowing to deal with large volumes of waste. Robots can also process materials with a high degree of accuracy and consistency in enclosed environment, reducing the risk of contamination.
Let us introduce you to FPD PRO® – automated AI based dismantling & sorting robot.
What’s the impact?
Better material recovery – FPD PRO® allows recovery of over 90% of the materials.
Using recycled materials is an important part of a circular economy and can play a significant role in reducing the environmental impact of materials production and use.
Let’s take aluminium as an example. Recycling aluminium uses only 5% of the energy required to produce aluminium from raw materials, which significantly reduces greenhouse gas emissions and other environmental impacts. Additionally, aluminium recycling conserves natural resources such as bauxite and reduces the need for mining and refining operations, which can have significant environmental impacts.
Do we verify our CO2e savings?
Yes. We use Gold Standard certification system. This strict certification process set out by the UNFCCC is designed to ensure that carbon credits represent real, additional and permanent emissions reductions, and that the projects that generate the credits contribute to sustainable development.
The Gold Standard provides assurance that the carbon credits are of high quality and have a positive impact on the environment and communities.
