Approach for Green Product Design

Palanivel Subramaniyam, Karthick Srinivasan, and Muni Prabaharan
Abstract—In this article an attention to environmental aspects, especially the necessity of recycling usage in the engineering design was paid. From product lifecycle concept, the cycle starts at the design of a product. These Eco-design products are not favorable in the market place as expected even though they sound more environmental friendly and economical. Because, they are focused solely on environmental impact analysis without paying much attention to customer needs and cost considerations. This problem can be avoided by implementing Quality Function Deployment (QFD). This paper presents an approach for the phases to be followed by an organization that incorporates design for recycling (DfR) into product design. It also states that the recycling process of various materials especially for appliance industry. This paper set up a boundary of recycling concept for appliance industry.

Serious environmental problems are caused by plastics. It is not intrinsically dangerous, but it takes up a huge amount of space in landfills. For these reasons, wherever it is possible, plastics should be recycled [5].
