Material Recycling without Hazardous Substances – Experiences and future outlook of ten manufacturers of consumer products

Tojo, Naoko LU and Thidell, Åke LU (2012) In PM 14/12.
Abstract
Manufacturers and distributors of products have a crucial role in the selection and/or verification of materials for their new products. This study sought to obtain concrete knowledge on perception, experiences, and future outlook of manufacturers and distributors who have been proactive in at least one of the two areas; the increased use of recycled materials and the decreased use of hazardous substances. The study covered four sectors - interior products, clothing, toys, and electrical and electronic equipment - and based on in-depth interviews to 10 manufacturers, sought to identify similarities and differences between the sectors.
