Reuse and lifetime extension of sustainable products and materials
The excessive consumption of the earth's resources is worsening and has a profoundly negative impact on the environment. We need to consume resources more wisely, use our products smarter for longer and find better ways to reuse or recycle them.
A longer product lifeWe need to extend the lifetime of products and materials to minimise the use of resources and reduce our impact on the climate. Product phases must be optimised, and maintenance and repairs prioritised. Resources that would otherwise become waste must return to the value chain or enter into new cycles. To accomplish this and improve our ability to reuse resources, material knowledge and separation, take-back systems and data are essential.
Optimal resource useThanks to the latest knowledge and modern facilities that support processes like large-scale additive manufacturing (AM), repairing products and extending their lives is more feasible than ever. Our specialists have deep insights into the properties of materials and can help with troubleshooting and the separation and reuse of product components, making better use of resources possible.
