Environmental considerations in Product Development


Paul Alexander

I have been tasked to include environmental design considerations into our Product Development. As one of our customers is Volvo, who have a long and excellent track record in Environmental issues, I was wondering does anyone have any experience of using LCA, Environmental Impact Assessments and Design for Environment within the electrical business supplying to Ford?

We here in Europe have a directive from the European Parliament which deals with End of Life vehicles and recycleability targets.

Any help or guidance would be appreciated.

Are you talking like lead free soldering techniques, maximizing the use of man-made materials, and using low VOC materials?
