In order to ensure that no CFC is left in the shredded polyurethane foam powder, the CFC concentration is measured on a continuous basis by a special measuring technique.

Since 1999, the SDK has been a member of the RAL Quality Assurance Association for the Demanufacture of Refrigeration Equipment Containing CFCs. The Association was created to guarantee quality in the fridge recycling process and to ensure compliance with the existing environmental standards. With more than 20 members throughout Europe, the RAL Quality Assurance Association makes sure that old fridges and freezers are recycled in an environmentally acceptable way.
