Climate is changing. The average temperature on earth is rising due to excessive emissions of greenhouse gasses such as CO2. In the meantime the economy is a linear economy where a produced from exhaustive materials are consumed and turned into waste. In order to fight climate change and exhaust the earth less the greenhouse gas emissions need...

Context <br/>The amount of electronic waste keeps growing, half of which is white goods. In the meantime a transition from gas hobs to induction hobs is taking place. Induction hob have a shorter lifetime and contain more valuable materials. As a consequence, the induction hob e-waste will increase significantly. <br/><br/>To prevent a further...

The corrosion of bearing steel often leads to accelerated damage and loss of properties that condition their service life. This damage is further exacerbated with the absorption of hydrogen into the material, generated from corrosion reactions happening at the surface. A remanufacturing process is proposed to recover the operating capabilities...

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...

The goal of this graduation project was to investigate if 3D printing could serve as a promising alternative for manufacturing spare parts needed for the re-manufacturing of diesel injection pumps. This project was conducted under the EU ReCiPSS project, along with the support of Robert Bosch GmbH. The proposition was investigated on three...

The building industry is material intensive and is responsible for approximately 40% of the total waste generated across the European Union. It operates on a ‘take-make-dispose’ model due to which key issues such as resource scarcity, waste generation, and environmental pressure occur. The circular economy has been attributed to the need to...

In this day and age sustainability is becoming increasingly important. Even though the airline business is not the first thing which comes to mind when regarding sustainability there are huge efforts in play to extend the life of airplanes and its corresponding components. This is done via remanufacturing. Remanufacturing can here be defined as:...

Windows are important elements in a building. They protect the interior from the exterior environment regarding weather conditions, noise, security and so on. While they also, in contrast to walls and floors, connect the two, creating links and providing rooms with daylight, fresh air and views in and out of the building. The most governing...

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....

Context<br/> The “take-make-dispose” linear model has proven to be highly unsustainable during the past decades. A circular economy has emerged as a model that is restorative by design, and a response towards the high material and energy intensive linear model. However, a transition to a circular built environment implies a radical change in...

The transition towards a circular economy proposes to deliver sustainable, lower carbon opportunities to society, governments and companies. This paper focuses on finding barriers encountered during remanufacturing activities and interpreting the barriers by using a framework for dynamic capabilities. Dynamic capabilities enable companies to...

Eco-efficient Value Creation is a method to analyse innovative product and service design together with circular business strategies. The method is based on combined analyses of the costs, market value (perceived customer value) and eco-costs. This provides a prevention-based single indicator for ‘external environmental costs’ in LCA. The...

As smartphones are being replaced at an increasing rate, it becomes more and more important to find ways to reuse (parts of) existing phones. This research investigates the potential of selling refurbished smartphones using a quantitative study. An online survey was conducted questioning 250 respondents, in which the perceived consumer risks and...

In the transition towards a circular economy, refurbishment can be applied to regain value from used products, and to reduce waste. Refurbishment is a process in which a professional company collects and restores used products in order to resell these products to new consumers. Building on insights from the remanufacturing literature, this...

Poppelaars, F.A. (author)
E-waste, price volatility of resources and the constant increase of the middle class world population expecting the same ‘high quality’ life standards have (amongst other) made some companies consider their options. In the reports of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, one aspect of the circular economy model aims at decoupling sales revenues from...

There has been a significant increase in volume of new clothing sales over the last ten years; indeed it is the fastest growing waste in household waste stream, raising the potential for a similar increase in volume of textile waste dispose in landfill sites and the resultant harm to the environment. As volume of throwaway fashion increases and...
