Interactive product development in recycling systems – A case study of the Norwegian deposit system for PET bottles
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper we have applied the interactive product development approach in combination with the life cycle system approach and put up a framework to evaluate and understand eco-efficiency development of production- and service system, included recycling system. The framework is thereafter applied in a case study of the Norwegian deposit- and recycling system for recyclable one-way PET bottles. The eco-efficiency of this system is quantified before the network of resources and resource interfaces that are believed to have contributed mostly to the development of the selected focal resource of the system, the baled PET bottles sold to recycler in 2002, is identified.
