The Potential of Remanufacturing

The sustainable future means everything for us. Together we can reduce the CO2 emissions, save energy and raw materials. We feel a responsibility to remind ourselves every year of how much of a difference we can make by implementing the right processes and restoring value to quality parts.

Facts & Figures*

  • In total, ZF offers around 5,500 different products (part numbers), which are remanufactured at ZF plants globally
  • ZF Group avoided emitting CO₂ emissions equivalent to more than 32,000 tons, compared to the production of new parts in 2022.

Natural resources are limited, which is why ZF relies on the industrial reprocessing of used parts. The remanufacturing program stands for new mobility and a sustainable future. This is one of the major challenges of the automotive industry. With the remanufacturing program, ZF shows commitment to sustainability and, with its knowledge and innovative strength, takes responsibility for the future.

*The calculation is based on raw material consumption, material salvage rates and volumes of remanufactured materials, as well as material-specific emission factors from internationally recognized sources.
