2006 (English)In: Proceedings of 13th CIRP Life Cycle Engineering 2006 volume 2, 2006, 389-392 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Materials are a strategic resource and the increasing prices for metals call for an optimized materials use.The prices for materials due to demands, growing faster than the production of virgin material, have putrecycling in focus. The mindset “material hygiene” is a pedagogical concept aimed at managingcompromises necessary to optimize materials use in products. Consideration to the entire life cycle of aproduct must be taken in order to avoid sub-optimization. This paper will discuss material hygiene aspectsin terms of disassembly and recycling of domestic appliances, especially dishwashers.
