Stertil-Koni, Stevensville, Md., recently launched the Envirolift 98 percent recyclable, self-regenerating lift.

Ninety-eight percent of the materials used to create the Envirolift are recyclable. Recyclable materials used to create the lift include its nylon, steel and, batteries. The deep-cycle marine batteries used are energy-efficient and 100 percent recyclable.

The lift is engineered to use the weight of the vehicle it has lifted to recharge its batteries with each lowering cycle. The lift's self-regeneration technology has led to a 50 percent increase in the total battery operating life. Envirolift's batteries have life expectancies approximating 50 cycles (under a full load of approximately 72,000 pounds).

The lift also uses Panolin, a 100-percent biodegradable synthetic oil that has a longer service life than other oils. With Panolin, a fluid change is not expected to be necessary for as many as six years, resulting in cost savings, and with the fluid's biodegradable nature, the environmental repercussions are minimized.

Stertil-Koni expects the Envirolift to be in full production no later than the first quarter of 2009.
