Infringement suit filed against ARCA

JACO Environmental, Inc. of Everett, Washington (JACO) and SEG Umwelt-Service/Basis of Mettlach, Germany (SEG) filed a patent infringement lawsuit in Federal Court against Appliance Recycling Centers of America/California (ARCA).

The suit claims that ARCA has been using refrigerator recycling systems and processes invented by SEG and protected by two United States patents issued to SEG and exclusively licensed to JACO. These two patents cover services that ARCA offers to electric utility customers and has used to recycle thousands of refrigerators.

JACO/SEG are seeking an undisclosed amount in damages from lost profits and have further asked the court to enjoin ARCA from continuing to use and market these services.
