Recycling of e-bike drives
Brose is the first e-bike drivetrain manufacturer to offer a dedicated recycling program for its drivetrains.
What recycling options does Brose offer?
Brose is the first manufacturer of e-bike drivetrains to offer a concept that allows us to make individual assemblies or parts of old drivetrains usable again. The overhaul program saves at least 21 kilograms of CO2 compared to the use of new parts - per drive. This is how Brose sets new standards for environmentally friendly mobility.
Renewed parts: Reman-Drive transforms previously used components into fully functional products, providing a cost-effective solution for customers while maintaining unparalleled quality and performance.
Improved quality measures: "Reman-Drive" makes
using meticulous, tailor-made disassembly, cleaning and testing procedures to maintain the same high standards as new units.
A direct contribution to the environment: "Reman-Drive significantly reduces CO2 emissions (min. 21 kg per unit) and waste, making an immediate positive contribution to the environment.
How does the cycle work?
Not every part of the drive is suitable for overhaul. Brose uses this option for electronic components, signal transmission discs, torque sensors and sockets. After disassembly, the parts are inspected and thoroughly cleaned; mechanical parts, for example, go into their own washing installation. An intensive inspection will then take place. Once the parts have passed all the tests, they use the remaining parts to build a remanufactured drivetrain that rivals a completely new engine in terms of durability and quality. This process applies to the Mag and Alu series motors.
+ Remanufacturing uses the existing production line. Maintaining a high quality standard.
+ Reman drive costs less than a new engine
+ All parts are processed, cleaned and tested internally
+ Reman-Drive is a separate product that can be used as a replacement or as a new functioning engine.
+ 2 years manufacturer's warranty
+ Reman is sold as new and with virtually no kilometers driven* in the engine.
*There will always be some kilometers driven on the motorcycle due to testing.
+ Remanufacturing of the engines prevents 240 tons of additional carbon emissions per year.
+ Old engines will be collected as standard in order to be put back into the recycling program and put on the market as Remanufactured.
How can you personally support the cycle?
After purchasing a Remanufactured Drive unit, the old engines will be collected as standard in order to be put back into the recycling program and marketed as Remanufactured. If the old engine has to be returned, additional costs will be charged.
