When it comes to data centers, much of the attention is (rightly) on energy consumption and the associated carbon emissions. However, the equipment used in the data centers and the embodied carbon resulting from manufacturing often receives far less scrutiny.
YOUR DATA CENTER EQUIPMENT IS THE HIDDEN CARBON MONSTER.
Some Monster stats:
- In 2022, an estimated 4.5 million metric tons of data center equipment was retired or replaced.
- This represents a 10% increase from the previous year.
- The majority of the equipment that was retired or replaced was servers (60%).
- Other equipment that was retired or replaced included storage devices (20%), networking equipment (15%), and cooling equipment (5%)
Reconext has processes and capabilities to ensure maximum reuse of outgoing data center equipment including storage devices.
Our proprietary equipment ensures complete sanitization of HDD and SSD drives to allow them to be reused in-tact. This results in a far higher degree of overall circularity and value recovery compared to mechanical shredding.
