KEARNEYSVILLE, WV -- Royal Remanufacturing LLC reports that it has converted its 100,000th vending machine to qualify for Energy Star certification through its Envirovend remanufacturing process. The company is a subsidiary of Royal Vendors, a major machine manufacturer.

The Envirovend program is designed to help Royal's customers reduce their carbon footprints by decreasing the energy consumption of their machines by approximately two-thirds. The process upgrades the lighting, refrigeration and electrical systems of beverage machines, elevating them to Energy Star standards. This means that the equipment has been independently certified to save energy without sacrificing features or functionality.

According to the manufacturer, the energy savings resulting from the upgrade of those 100,000 vending machines translates to 329 million kwh/year, which is enough electricity to power 30,000 homes annually, and represents the elimination of some 700 million pounds of annual carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.

Since the inception of the Envirovend program in 2010, Royal Remanufacturing says its customers have eliminated over 2 billion pounds of CO2 emissions -- and have reduced the number of vending machines being discarded into landfills by more than 100,000 units.

Founded in 1958, Royal Vendors is a global leader in the design and manufacture of refrigerated beverage vending machines. Royal Remanufacturing sells refurbished equipment throughout the U.S.
