Recycling chains : a proposal for an exhaustive definition
TypeCommunications sans actes
In the context of a circular economy, recycling presents as an interesting solution to reduce the impact of raw materials extraction and to reduce the quantity of waste that is incinerated or landfilled. However nowadays, there is no global and complete definition (which could be used as a common reference) of recycling chains. Listing the parameters to be taken into account, such a definition would allow manufacturers and researchers to better assess the efficiency and the stability of supply chains (not only at the beginning of the product lifecycle, but also towards the next one), and to accurately compare them. Therefore, we need a better definition of recycling chains, describing the system in its whole dimension (i.e. all internal and external factors) so as to improve (i) our understanding of the system and (ii) its inherent problems. Firstly, the recycling chain will be defined and described as exhaustively as possible. Then, the second part will focus on the best way to integrate this information when analyzing and optimizing recycling chains. Lastly, perspectives of this preliminary work will be detailed.

Efficacité potentielle de valorisation: Proposition d’indicateurs à l’usage du concepteur pour mieux prendre en compte l’efficacité des voies de traitement du produit en fin de vie MARTINEZ LEAL, Jorge; POMPIDOU, Stéphane; CHARBUILLET, Carole; PERRY, Nicolas (Presse des Mines, 2019)Depuis les années 1970, des réglementations de plus en plus contraignantes ont été mises en place pour résoudre les problématiques environnementales et mieux valoriser les déchets, dans une optique d’économie circulaire. ...
MARTINEZ LEAL, Jorge; POMPIDOU, Stéphane; CHARBUILLET, Carole; PERRY, Nicolas (MDPI AG, 2020)In the context of a circular economy, one can observe that (i) recycling chains are not adapted enough to the end-of-life products they have to process and that (ii) products are not sufficiently well designed either to ...
Scope Definition on End-of-Life Chain Performance Assessment: Recycling Rate and French E-Waste Chain Case Study ARDUIN, Rachel Horta; MARTINEZ LEAL, Jorge; GRIMAUD, Guilhem; CHARBUILLET, Carole; POMPIDOU, Stéphane; LARATTE, Bertrand; PERRY, Nicolas (2017)Efficiency indicators have been frequently used to assess end-of-life chain performance. While legislations give a standard definition, sometimes stakeholders redefine them to fit their own scopes and objectives. It is ...
MARTINEZ LEAL, Jorge; POMPIDOU, Stéphane; CHARBUILLET, Carole; PERRY, Nicolas (Elsevier BV, 2018)Today, companies need to assess the recoverability of their products from the design phase, not only for legislative reasons but also to appraise how they will be able to recover all or part of their value when they reach ...
