Optimal Design for the Environment of the Means Transportation: A Case Study of Reuse and Recycling Materials
In the paper a topic of environmentally-oriented optimal design of means of transport is presented focusing on the example of reuse and recycling of materials. The following was applied in the field of environmental analysis of transport means: LCA (Life Cycle Assessment), LCC, LCI, DfE, DfR, DfD, end-of-life, assembly, disassembly, recycling, reuse, modeling of material separation. Results of the analysis enabled identification of components of transport means that dominate with respect to generated unfavorable environmental interactions. This allowed indicating areas, where modifications can strongly improve environmental image of means of transportation.
