dm-drogerie market is the first German retailer a Certified Member in the L∞P by Daikin Recover-Reclaim-Reuse program to support circular economy for refrigerants. This process reclaims recovered refrigerants and up cycles them to virgin quality for reuse, making an important contribution to reducing material consumption and ensuring the responsible use of valuable resources. The L∞P by Daikin recover-reclaim-reuse program enables customers like dm to close ‘their’ loop and become even more sustainable.

In 2020 dm executed the first pilot case, where a total of 15.4 kg of R-410A refrigerant was recovered from a refurbished store. This refrigerant was successfully reclaimed and then reused in a dm store in Bad Nauheim. 

“dm was highly satisfied with the results of the pilot case and the partnership between Koch Kälteanlagenbau GmbH, Schneider Umwelttechnik, Westfalen and Daikin. We plan to speed up the implementation of the program in 2021 to make another important contribution to resource conservation", explains Martin Auer, Head of Building Services Development at dm. The result is that today nearly 60 kgs of refrigerant have already been recovered from the dm network. 

"We are pleased to pull together with dm as a long-standing partner. L∞P by Daikin Recover-Reclaim-Reuse is a perfect example of how companies can act right now to support a more sustainable future", says Gerald Platzer, Head of Key-Account Daikin Germany Airconditioning GmbH. "We work every day to make our products as energy-efficient as possible, improve the circularity of our products and I’m proud to have this new service to help our partners and customers to further reduce their environmental impact."

In 2019, Daikin became the first in the industry to use re-use refrigerant for selected VRV units. The success of the L∞P by Daikin program prompted the company to expand the concept last year to include all VRV systems using R-410A refrigerant which are manufactured and sold in the EU.
On top of that the program is expanded offering customers the service to create a circular economy within their own network.

The principle of refrigerant re-use offers several benefits. L∞P by Daikin reduces the production of new refrigerants by 250,000 kg per year and natural resources are no longer depleted. L∞P by Daikin is also fully supporting the European Green Deal and the F-Gas Regulation.

At the same time, reusing refrigerants instead of purchasing them new, comes at no extra cost, in this way Daikin offers building owners an optimal solution by conserving both ecological and economic resources.
