Circular Economy Strategies for Equipment Lifetime Extension: A Systematic Review
RECLAIM has published a new paper in “Circular Economy and Sustainable Strategies“.
This paper provides a systematic literature review of the most prominent papers related to the Circular Economy and lifetime extension, with a particular focus on the equipment and machinery sector. A taxonomy was used to define and cluster a subset of selected papers to build a homogeneous approach for understanding the multiple strategies used in the industry, and the standards in maintenance and remanufacturing strategies.
As a final research step, we also propose a Strategy Characterisation Framework to build the ground for the selection of the best strategy to be applied for production equipment life cycle extension on several industrial use cases.
