Istobal, the Spanish car wash equipment manufacturer, is committed to developing environmentally friendly technologies. Thanks to its Restyle product line, the company recycles more than 130 tons of raw materials from car wash machines every year. Istobal is able to extend the life of its machines by remodeling and recycling, saving 130,000 kg worth of steel sheet, aluminum, copper, motors, and other electrical and electronic components.
Parts replacement, structure recovery treatments, and upgrades with new optional items allow Istobal to offer a second life to machines that would otherwise be discarded as scrap. Reliability and competitive pricing are not jeopardized. France, Spain, and the United Kingdom are the most popular markets for recycled machines, an environmental trend that has grown in recent years.
