1 © Loughborough University, 2004 Kodak single use camera Materials –Fewer material types –Plastics labelled for recycling End of Life –Collection system for old products to feed into remanufacture Testing and reuse of components Testing and reuse of batteries, or donated Plastic cases reground and fed into manufacture

Philips focus on 5 focal areas: 1.Weight 2.Hazardous substances 3.Recycling and disposal 4.Energy consumption 5.Packaging

4 © Loughborough University, 2004 Xerox Length of life –Photocopiers are leased – higher quality, more durable, Xerox maintain value End of life –Machines are designed for disassembly –Components are tested and reused –Plastic exterior covers from collected copiers are broken down, washed, then recycled. Materials –The plastic is used in the manufacture of new photocopiers.

10 © Loughborough University, 2004 © Ben Manwaring / Department of Design and Technology, Loughborough University The 'Sunrise' outdoor table collects solar energy via 12 solar panels housed the transparent table top, in conjunction with a charge controller and 12V battery to store solar energy for evening lighting. The central light is in the 'down' position during the daytime whilst charging takes places. It is released when required, by pushing down upon the central dome. A central column then rises up via the internal gas strut, and illuminates automatically. 18 White LED's are angled to evenly illuminate the tabletop. The system is designed to work in overcast conditions and on a full days charge will produce between 6 - 8 hours of illumination. Sunrise Solar Table
