Abstract

The research implements a business decision support system to evaluate envi-ronmental and economic implications for different end of life alternatives strat-egies. The case study described in the paper is the evaluation of end of life au-tomotive engine. In detail, the analysis consists of the evaluation of environ-mental impacts and economic costs of engine remanufacturing process. In par-ticular, will be compared three different alternatives: remanufacturing, reuse and recycling (material recovery). Thanks to remanufacturing, it is possible an-yway to increase end-of-life benefits, compared with recycling, avoiding, from a life cycle perspective, the manufacturing process of new products through re-furbishing or reuse, preventing at the same time certain generation of waste. Results will be shown in a bi-dimensional graph displaying the three alterna-tives with their economic revenue and environmental gain.
