  1. 1. Interest in Material Cycle Closure? Exploring Evolution of Industry's Responses to High-grade Recycling from an Industrial Ecology Perspective

    University dissertation from The International Institute for Industrial Environmental Economics

    Author : Philip Peck; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; polymers; vehicles; ELV; extended producer responsibility; chemical recycling; material cycling; material flows; closed-loop recycling; Industrial Ecology; recycling; aluminium.; Environmental technology; pollution control; Miljöteknik; kontroll av utsläpp;

    Abstract : Many anthropogenically-produced or beneficiated materials contained in “end-of-life” products retain a great proportion of the invested manufacturing work when discarded. Very few such materials are reconstituted and applied in new products at the same material inherent quality level as in their first lifetime – a process known as “closed-loop recycling”. READ MORE

  2. 2. Material Hygiene An EcoDesign mindset for recycling of products

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Jan Johansson; KTH.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : In recent years the end-of-life phase has come into focus. European Union directives have been issued regulating certain product groups and producer responsibility. Vehicles and electronic products are the first to be identified and targeted. EU environmental legislation acts as a driver for increased reuse, recycling and recovery. READ MORE

  3. 3. Designing out waste - Exploring barriers for material recirculation

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Isabel Ordonez Pizarro; [2016]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; waste sorting; sustainable development; Water; Waste; Urban; waste management; Resources; resource recovery; ​Recycling; designing with waste; recycling;

    Abstract : This doctoral thesis has investigated what hinders material recirculation in society, to later suggest possible ways to support material recirculation in the future. Since material recirculation is proposed as a way to use waste materials for new production, it was deemed relevant to investigate two separate case studies that enabled recirculation from production systems and waste management.

  4. 4. Innovating Recycling of End-of-Life Cars

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Magnus Andersson; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; End-of-Life; Scarce Metal; Material Flow Analysis; Vehicle; Technological Innovation System; Car; Critical Material; Recycling;

    Abstract : There are currently a billion cars in use worldwide, and car design trends point at increasing variety in material utilisation. Cars today contain several types of steel and aluminium, an assortment of textiles and padding materials, and an increasing amount of polymers and scarce metals. READ MORE

  5. 5. Logistics systems for recycling : on the influence of products, structures, relationships and power

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Maria Huge Brodin; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; logistics systems; recycling; products structures; relationships; power; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The environmental trend, and environmental legislation, has during the past decade grown stronger, and with it the focus on environmental issues within many fields of research and practice. This has implications for logistics, and the focus in this dissertation is on the logistics systems that are needed to realise recycling of end-of-life products: logistics systems for recycling (LSRs).
