Organization: CEN
Publication Date: 1 August 2018
Status: pending
Page Count: 25
ICS Code (Environmental economics. Sustainability): 13.020.20
scope:

This document provides a general methodology for:

• Assessing the recyclability of energy-related products;

• Assessing the recoverability of energy-related products;

• Assessing the ability to access or remove certain components, assemblies, materials or substances from products to facilitate their extraction at the end-of-life for ease of treatment, recycling and other recovery operations;

• Assessing the recyclability of critical raw materials from energy-related products. This document defines generic methods and parameters which are applicable for the development of product-specific standards in order to calculate product-specific recyclability and recoverability rates.

This document cannot be applied directly to a product-group because a correct assessment can only be done in a product-specific way. This document defines a series of parameters which may be considered to calculate product-specific recyclability and recoverability indices.
