- With environmental concerns growing, Flowbird has employed eco-design principles for more than 15 years.
- Prior to equipment design, there is an eco-design process, which involves experts in specifying materials, components, power sources and IT systems.
- The goal of this is to minimise the environmental impact of the product over its life cycle: from material choice to dismantling, through manufacturing, logistics and operational lifecycle of the terminal.
- Flowbird’s parking kiosks are designed in conjunction with the following criteria to minimise the impacts on the environment: Restriction of hazardous substances & reduce quantity of waste
- Choice of materials used in design process
- Energy saving by promoting solar configuration
- Saving of energy consumption during terminal life
- Modular conception, to make the re-use easier and facilitate the end-of-life treatment.
- Maximise the product recycling (over 90% of the mass of a PAYSTATION is recyclable).
- Flowbird has constantly strived to reduce the power requirements of its machines by rationalising electronic boards, optimising software drivers and reducing the number of moving parts.
STRADA recycling rate is 98% for recovery.
Since 1995, Flowbird has been designing and supplying solar powered pay parking kiosks for the Transport and Parking industry. Unlike many parking solutions manufacturers, Flowbird lead with solar power as the preferred option for the PAYSTATION terminals, efficient and “green” alternative to electricity generated by nuclear or fossil-fuelled Flowbird’s large proportion of machines produced are solar powered: today, 80% of terminals delivered worldwide are solar powered.
