Going Green-EcoDesign 2019

Site Map



The purpose of EcoDesign2021 is to bring together worldwide professionals interested in advancing the state of the art in EcoDesign for exchanging knowledge that encompasses a broad range of disciplines among various distinct communities.


Product Life Cycle Design and Management

■Environmentally Conscious Design of Products and Services
E. g., Life cycle design, Design for environment (DfE), Design for disassembly, Design for recycling, Design for remanufacturing, Design for behavior, Product service system (PSS), Servicizing
■Life Cycle Management
E. g., Maintenance, Smart life cycle management, Life cycle simulation, Product lifetime, Reliability analysis, Machine health monitoring
■Sustainable Manufacturing
E.g., Cleaner production, Lean manufacturing, Industrial symbiosis, Industrial ecology, Smart factory
■EoL Management and Process Technologies
E. g., Recycling, Disassembly, Remanufacturing, Refurbishment, Repair, Reuse, Urban mining, Critical raw materials (CRMs)
■Green Supply Chain Management
E.g., Closed-loop supply chain management, Reverse logistics, Operations research
■Digital Technologies for Sustainability
E.g., Digitalization in developing country, Cyber physical system (CPS), Telework, Additive manufacturing, Internet of things (IoT), Digital Twin, Digital transformation, Business innovation, Big data application

Sustainability Assessment for EcoDesign

■Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)
E. g., LCA methodologies, Carbon footprint, Material footprint, Water footprint, Material flow analysis (MFA), Material flow cost accounting (MFCA), Economic impacts of environmental regulations, Input-output analysis, Environmental product declaration (EPD), Biomass, Food/Agriculture, Renewable energy system
■Sustainability Indices
E.g., Resource efficiency, Energy efficiency, Material criticality, Total material requirement (TMR)

Social Perspectives in EcoDesign

■Sustainable Consumption and Production
E. g., Sharing economy, Circular production, Behavioral science, Environmental consumer behavior, Social acceptance, Green marketing, Sufficiency, Locally oriented design and manufacturing, Design in aging society, Behavior change in pandemic
■Policy, Legislation and Social Activities
E. g., Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Circular economy, Green procurement, Extended producer responsibility (EPR), Eco-label, International standard, ESG investment, Environmental education, Corporate social responsibility (CSR), Vision of sustainable world from art, science and technology
■Sustainable Social Infrastructure
E. g., Smart city, Green building, Intelligent transportation system, Autonomous car, Smart grid, Water security, Resilience
