Wire arc additive manufacturing (WAAM) enables the manufacturing of efficient and lightweight structural elements in which material can be utilised wherever needed in an optimised shape, in contrast to standard prismatic profiles used in construction. However, the specific energy consumption (SEC) of WAAM is higher than that of conventional...

Circular economy has become a popular subject, attracting attention from academics, practitioners, and policy-makers alike. However, despite the excitement surrounding it, the concept of circular economy has been criticized for being vague and having multiple interpretations from different fields. As a result, there is a lack of evidence and...

This research and design project is part of the Green ICU initiative and focused on reducing the environmental impact of gloves at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the Erasmus Medical Center (EMC). At the ICU of the EMC around 108 gloves are used per patient per day; to protect the user (healthcare staff) from infections. The high frequency of...

This study answerd the research question, What is needed to enable design students, particularly at the Industrial Design Engineering (IDE) faculty in Delft, without prior experience in Life Cycle Assessment to effectively incorporate the fundamentals of the LCA method into their design practices? Through empirical research (interviews and...

To reduce energy consumption of households, many appliances contain eco-settings, which when used, reduce energy consumption. However, the effectivity of the eco-settings in reducing energy consumption is hardly tested. Other design for sustainable behaviour strategies like coercion and feedback might be more effective. To test the...

Behavioural design has emerged as a critical new area of research and practice. However, despite the development of extensive lists of possible problem features and suggested solution principles there is little guidance on how these should be connected. Therefore, in this work we systematically examine interactions between major problem features...

Product-service systems are circular business models that can potentially extend product lifetimes and reduce resource consumption. However, consumer product care is crucial in these business models. We explore consumer product care of newly bought, second-hand, and accessed bicycles and washing machines through an online survey (n = 212). Our...

Values are attributed to products over time and across generations. They are created, compiled, shared, evolved, exchanged, and also discarded. However, creating an explicit theory and analysis on this subject is challenging due to the abstract and multifaceted nature of the topic with a plethora of theories from various research communities. To...

Additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, is acknowledged for its potential to support sustainable design. In this paper, we explore whether the opportunities that additive manufacturing offers for sustainable design are also useful when designing for a circular economy, and to what extent additive manufacturing can support design...

Although food has been circular by nature, the current food supply chain has turned into an unfortunate linear system. The challenges of transitioning towards a sustainable food eco-system requires radical changes and new perspectives, where things are done differently. Starting with related work in the field of design for product longevity, the...

In current behavioural approaches to Design for Sustainability, collectively labelled Design for Sustainable Behaviour (DfSB), the main focus is on “mitigating, controlling or blocking unsustainable or inappropriate behaviour by users” (Lilley, Lofthouse & Bhamra, 2005). The concept of sustainability appears limited to restraining the...

Local creative community and design engineers are key stakeholders in initiating a local discourse on sustainability that includes considerations of production and consumption issues. The role of designers is increasingly changing to that of a strategic or facilitator role. Aligned with this global development, we developed Future Living Studio ...

European ecodesign policy is currently bringing material resource efficiency into focus. This paper explores how and to what extent policy addresses sustainable consumption-related issues, and what the consequences may be for the future role of design in supporting sustainable everyday consumption. How will policy help and hinder designers and...

The classical method to compare the environmental impact or eco-burden of different packaging designs is to use life cycle assessment (LCA). LCA requires a functional unit to compare unequal concepts on an ‘equal’ footing, for instance by comparing three 0,5 litre bottles, with one 1,5 litre bottle. Creating this ‘equal’ footing usually ignores...

While sustainability in Design finds much attention in the literature, the education of sustainability in Design courses lacks discussion regarding curricula and importance. In an attempt to map the way sustainability is taught in Design Bachelor and Master Courses in the European Union, we began analysing faculties from a number of EU countries...
