Sustainable products and materials: reuse and lifetime extension
The ongoing excessive consumption of the earth's resources has been worsening for years, with a profoundly negative impact on the environment. We need to consume resources more wisely, and we need to use our products in smarter ways, make them last longer, and find better ways to reuse or recycle them.
Lifetime extensionExtend the lifetime of products and materials if we are to reduce our impact on the climate and minimise the use of resources. This means that products' use phases must be optimised and maintenance and repairs must be prioritised. Meanwhile, 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 key.
Optimal use of resourcesThanks to the latest knowledge and modern facilities to support processes like large-scale additive manufacturing (AM), repairing products and extending their lifetimes is more feasible now than ever before. Our specialists are also experts on the properties of materials, so they can help with troubleshooting and the separation and reuse of product components, making it possible to make better use of resources.
