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...

Most products require a redesign to be viable in a circular economy. For instance, by implementing design for disassembly, remanufacturing, recyclability, and using long-lived components. Typically, different solutions can be chosen to improve a products' circularity, and different strategies can be aimed at keeping the product, its components,...

Remanufacturing offers an approach to extend product lifetime beyond its first use. After restoring products to original quality, they are reintroduced to the market. To make products more suited for this approach, and to increase resource-efficiency, design for remanufacturing can be incorporated for new product development. Academic...

The principles of repair and maintenance, reuse, and repurposing of products in a circular economy aim at further minimizing the environmental impact during the use of products before being processed for recycling. However, studies on lattice structures in various fields focus on mechanical characteristics, design, and manufacturing methods....

Designers play an important role in service transformation and the development of product-service systems by applying co-creation methods. This paper presents a case of how we applied co-creation in practice and the impact this has had on developing a circular product-service system. It details the method used in the co-creation process and...

Schild, Tom (author)
Repurpose, the reuse of (parts of) obsolete products in new applications seems a promising strategy towards a circular economy because products can be (partly) reused without applying any energy consuming recycling process, which often results in a loss of material quality. As repurpose is a strategy to retain value, the process is applied after...

Adopting design approaches that allow products to last multiple use-cycles supports European Commission objectives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and reduce primary material impacts. Remanufacturing is an example of an appropriate circular strategy and it can be applied in a variety of industries that are intensive materials users....

This thesis presents a circular innovation strategy for Miscanthus based packaging. In the wold, more and more plastic packaging is being used. A large part of the used plastics is single-use plastic packaging that is only used for a couple of minutes and then discarded. The discarded plastic packaging stays in the environment for hundreds of...

DSM Dyneema produces an extremely strong fibre called Dyneema® consisting of Ultra High Molecular weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE). The Dyneema® material has been trademarked by its manufacturer as The Greenest strength™. This claim is based on the non-toxic chemical nature of the material and its production, as well as on having the lowest carbon...

This paper presents the result of a co-creation and context mapping study amongst seventeen washing machines users. The users had widely varying experiences with products offered through alternative ownership models, including three who were active users of a washing machine with pay-per-use or monthly subscription model. Through the co-creation...

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...

Today’s industry relies on the take-make-dispose approach of the linear economic model. Our linear consumption and production patterns are depleting our planet’s resources, polluting our environment and changing our climate. As a proposed solution to this problem, a circular economic model is designed to reduce the flow of non-renewable energy...
