Since July 1st, 2006, the EU-guidline "RoHS" is in effect.
This guidline prohibits selling goods, inside the EU, which contain the below listed substances.
For the manufacturers and suppliers of electric and electronical devices and their components, the EU directives 2002/95/EG (directive about the restriction of use of certain hazardous materials in electronic and electronical devices) and 2002/96/EG (directive concerning electronical waste) come into force on Juli 1st 2006.
These directives - short form „RoHS“ (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) and „WEEE“ (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) - rule the disposal of electronical waste and permit the selling of new devices which have lead, mercury, cadmium, chrome 6 and/or bromed flame savers (PBB, PBDE) as components.
In 2011 a photovoltaics device with 49,1 kW peak was installed on the roof of the company building. ASTRO makes it's contribution to energy revolution and accomodates sustained yield and protection of environmment.
When the european guideline 2002/96EG fürr Elektro- und Elektroaltgeräte (WEEE) 2002/95/EG refering to reduction of dangerous materials in electronic devices was introduced, the use of lead in electronic devices was permitted by law. By using Nitrogen it is possible to improve the results of soldering without using lead or other dangerous materials.
