Recent trends, such as the trend toward carbon neutrality and toward a circular economy, indicate that it is increasingly crucial to include environmental sustainability in design and manufacturing. In design, this includes ecodesign, life cycle design, scenario design, service design, and design for X, such as remanufacturing, refurbishment, repair, and direct reuse (RRRDR). It also includes maintenance, upgrades, recycling, disassembly, and inspection. In manufacturing, it includes sustainable manufacturing, carbon neutralization, reduced energy and/or resource consumption, and sustainable value chain management.
The aim of this special issue is to bring together the latest research and practical case studies on design and manufacturing for environmental sustainability, especially those that deal with a holistic view of technology, business, legislation, energy, resources, infrastructures, and customer behavior. Papers ranging from theory to applications and case studies are welcomed. Topics of interest in this special issue include but are not limited to the following.
* Design for sustainability: ecodesign, life cycle design, scenario design, product service system design, design for XaaS, and design for X
