Boorsma, N.E. (author)
BoorsmaRemanufacturing is one of the product recovery approaches in a circular economy. In the remanufacturing production process, used products are returned to their original product specifications. When compared to original manufacturing, remanufacturing results in lower raw material consumption and reduces carbon emissions. Despite having...

Joustra, J.J. (author)
In this dissertation, I investigate how to design products for a circular economy using composite materials. The circular economy is a potential solution to achieving a sustainable use of resources. Reuse of products and recycling materials lowers pressure on resource stocks, saves energy, and reduces the accumulation of waste. This requires a...

Pozo Arcos, B. (author)
Today’s industrialized societies face the challenge of integrating economic activity with sustainable consumption. Prosperity has come hand in hand with environmental damage. Product lifetimes are decreasing and there is a rising demand for high-tech products for which no effective recycling is in place. Hence, the value from products is lost to...

The circular economy offers an alternative to the linear economy (also called the take-make-use-waste society) we live in. It puts emphasis on using resources effectively by slowing and closing resources loops. Design is seen as enabler in a circular economy. Design decisions taken now have an impact on the recovery of products in the future....

The concept of a ‘Circular Economy’ (CE) has been gaining traction in business, policy, and academia. It envisions an economy powered by renewable energy in which the value of products and materials are preserved for as long as possible. ‘Design for Circular Economy’ is emerging as a research field as well as a branch of sustainable design...

Brown, P.D. (author)
Our society faces many global sustainability challenges. Many of these challenges we have either created or exacerbated by not thinking about how the scale of our actions impacts the planet. We have however entered the Anthropocene, an epoch in time whereby human activity is now the dominant force upon the planet’s climate and environment. It is...

Sauerwein, M. (author)
This PhD project explored how the use of 3D printing can support design in a circular economy. 3D printing is an emerging technology and is viewed as a promising production process for the circular economy because of its unique additive and digital character. The aim of design in a circular economy is to preserve the value of products and...

Fakhredin, F. (author)
The topic of this thesis is design for recycling (DfR) of electronic products. More than ever before, electronic products are intruding into our everyday life, both in the household and in industry, resulting in increasing numbers of electronic products ending up in waste streams (also known as electronic waste, or e-waste). Electronic products...
