Amount of Material in Appliances Installed or Stored in Private Homes
The penetration of home appliances, particularly for those ensuring the basic needs of EU citizens, but also the increase of penetration of small appliances, resulted in a total stock in 2016 of more than 67 Mt.
When looking also at other electric and electronic equipment (EEE), the total is more than 110 Mt.
These appliances represent a source of materials for the EU, embedded in our daily life. Materials are used in their production and remain during the use phase in homes.
