Reduce, Reuse & Recycle

We go further in saving energy, and have installed heat recovery units in the manufacturing site for displays. All production-related effluents are filtered and neutralized before being discharged in a proper way.

Beneq products contain waste materials that can be hazardous if not disposed of properly.
