De and remanufacturing Decision Support System


Service targeted to regional and local stakeholders (mainly companies) dealing with circular economy (Waste managers, recyclers manufacturers and waste generators); it provides automated identifications of possible treatments, processes and post-processes for each plastics and composites waste typology.


Service provision is based on 2 algorithms that weight and correlate input data (decision criteria) and output options (most appropriate treatments). The algorithms are designed by applying the “Decision Matrices”. The input data are entered by any of the potential users and refer to the characteristics of the waste and the position of the stakeholders in the value chain.


For regional and local manufacturing companie:
1. Demanufacturing processes selector Modul outputs
They select the best option from the following possibilities:
• Reuse
• Remanufacture
• Recycling
• Energy valorization
• Disposal

2. Recycling processes selector modul outputs
They select the best option from the following possibilities:
• Waste Manager
• Systems demounting / parts sales
• Dismantiller /Sorting, cleaning
• Thermal process recycler: Pirolysis or Combustion
• Fiber Conditioner /cutting, sizing, etc.
• Textil processes
• Compounder /Semi- finishing maker: Thermoplastics, Thermosets or Both /Indiferent
• End user o parts supplier
