Baker Hughes' Artificial Lift product line has implemented processes to move toward a circular economy-aligned business model.

At end of life, customers can return equipment which is then assessed to determine if it can be refurbished. If suitable, it is repaired, tested, and confirmed that it meets the original equipment criteria, and then it is redeployed at the customer's location. Where unsuitable, the equipment is assessed to reclaim materials as feasible, and the remainder is recycled.

Recycling and repairing this equipment allows Baker Hughes to keep the locations from excess contaminants, as well as reduce the need to produce components, therefore, reducing energy consumption and carbon output.

This programme includes pumps, intakes for gas separators, seals, and motors. In 2021, more than 16,770 units were reclaimed.
