Life cycle management – End-of-Life

The project investigates strategies to improve the life cycle sustainability performance of products through end-of-use management.  The project process involves:

  • understanding the current end-of-use status by reviewing and mapping the current product-material flows; 
  • assessing the potential for environmental improvement through end-of-use strategies for different product categories; and 
  • development of an end-of-use management strategy, involving remanufacturing, product-service offerings, recycling and others
