Strumenti progettuali per la dismissione di apparecchiature elettriche ed elettroniche – Consorzio ReMedia is a
non-profit company that works with the government in order to improve the management of WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment).They financed a research aimed to develop a tool for the design of electrical and electronic equipment, to improve the end-of-life treatment and the material recycling for this category of products.
The result of this research is a set of evaluation tools, grouped in a methodology called D.A.D. (Design Analysis for Disposal).
When applied to a product, the methodology quantifies the level of disassembly achievable, in order to recycle its components, and what could be improved.
