Slide 2: 

EOTC2003© - #2 Experiences from participation in a Project sponsored by the Danish EPA: ”Integration of Disposal in the Design and Construction of Electronic Equipment” Geert Klemmensen Quality & Environmental Coordinator Kamstrup Ltd

Slide 3: 

EOTC2003© - #3 Founded in 1946 Business areas: Electronic meters for heat and electricity Remote data reading equipments SYSTEMS - including software and services Gas regulating stations Quality management certified in accordance with ISO 9001 Environment management certified in accordance with ISO 14001 Parent company is the Danish oil company of OK

Slide 4: 

EOTC2003© - #4 Facts 368 employees Produces 300,000 thermal heat meters and electricity meters annually Group turnover 2002: 54.6 million euro Export share: 70% Authorised distributors in 40 countries Subsidiaries in Poland, the Netherlands and Norway Sales offices in Sweden, Finland, Germany, Spain, Rumania, Switzerland, UK, France, Russia and China

Project background : 

EOTC2003© - #5 The project should be seen in the light of the implementation of the new EU Directive on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (the WEEE Directive) and the EU Directive on the Restriction of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (the RoHS Directive). Project background

Project objective : 

EOTC2003© - #6 The objective of the Project was to develop an existing eco-design guide (A Designers Guide to Eco-Conscious Design of Electrical and Electronic Equipment), to include guidelines for incorporation of recycling and disposal into the product design phase. Project objective

Case products : 

EOTC2003© - #7 The following two products were selected, to serve as case products for the development of the eco-design guide: a groundwater pump, developed and manufactured by Grundfos Ltd, and an electricity meter, developed and manufactured by Kamstrup Ltd. Case products

Case products : 

EOTC2003© - #8 Demounting analysis of both products - took place in a close cooperation between the two manufacturers and the largest Danish electronic waste recycling company, H.J.Hansen Elektromiljø Ltd. Demounting time, quantities of recovered materials, recycling rate etc. were registered Case products

The guide : 

EOTC2003© - #9 A number of new modules were added to the eco-design guide, with the purpose of calculating the recycling rate, the material value, the energy consumption as well as recycling and disposal costs for any product. The guide

The guide : 

EOTC2003© - #10 "A designer's Guide to Eco-Conscious Design of Electrical and Electronic Equipment” can be downloaded for free from: www.ecodesignguide.dk The guide

Case product : 

EOTC2003© - #11 Household meter (1-phase) Readable display Reliable data logging of consumption Optical or serial reading Low internal consumption Configurable set-up Modular space for future updating Type approval IEC 61036 (cl. 2) Case product Kamstrup 162 Electricity Meter

Demounting analysis : 

EOTC2003© - #12 Demounting analysis

Slide 13: 

EOTC2003© - #13

Product development : 

EOTC2003© - #14 Development specifications includes requirements regarding eco-design Demounting analysis and environmental evaluation is done in the prototype phase Environmental declaration and disposal instruction is based on the analysis Product development

Product development : 

EOTC2003© - #15 Use as few different materials as possible Avoid dangerous and poisonous materials Use materials that can be recycled Don´t glue parts together Don´t coat or paint plastic parts Don´t mould metal or rubber into plastic parts Avoid screws, if possible Product development

Lessons learned : 

EOTC2003© - #16 Eco-design does not need to be a heavy scientific proces The eco-design guide and some common sense are very applicable tools Lessons learned
