Italian term or phrase: Oltre che l’eventuale manutenzione nel tempo.
Aspetto e estetica dell’apparecchio restano inalterati, così come l’ecocompatibilità prevista dai due progettisti già alla sua nascita nel 1985: tutti i componenti di XXX sono infatti facilmente separabili, al fine di agevolarne il riciclo o lo smaltimento corretto. Oltre che l’eventuale manutenzione nel tempo. Mutano le prestazioni, accresciute in un apparecchio gradevole e intelligente frutto della costante ricerca del Gruppo XXX, orientato alla realizzazione di prodotti sostenibili in grado di offrire le migliori prestazioni senza inutile dispendio di risorse e di energia.

I am having some difficulty with this phrase and would appreciate some help. They are a lighting company that supplied lighting to the New York times building. Thank you

Explanation:
Not sure this sounds well in English, but that's what they mean (hopefully it will spark some ideas). The fact that the components can easily be disassembled helps their disposal, recycling and eventual future maintenance.
