Abstract [en]

The environmental debate is more intensive than ever before and the demands on companies increase. There are a number of methods to make it easier for the companies to fulfil the demands. Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) end ecodesign are some of the methods that can be used.

 

Syntronic AB has the possibility to reduce the products´ environmental impact in the design phase. Therefore it is important for the company to make it possible to visualize the negative environmental impacts a product can cause in an easy way. It is also important to visualize for there clients if any improvement is possible.

 

The purpose of this thesis is to develop a simplified model. The purpose of the model is to illustrate the environmental impact in the design phase of the product. To develop the model we have used previous research about environmental impact, legislation and methods. With that as a base we have develop a simplified model which Syntronic AB can use in their communication with their clients.

 

The model is built up so that different parameters can be used. That means that the model can be applied so it makes it possible to compare compatible material and components to already existing materials and components.

 

The problem in doing a LCA is to get data that is up to date and trustworthy. It limits the models trustworthiness if you are forced to use stencil data. Therefore the result that the model generates should be considered as an image to used in decision making when the company communicates environmental adapt in product development.
