Railway applications - Recyclability and recoverability calculation method for rolling stock
|Publication Date:||25 September 2018|
|ICS Code (Railway rolling stock in general):||45.060.01|
This document specifies a calculation method of the recyclability and the recoverability rate for rolling stock. The calculation method introduced by this document considers the different end-of-life paths such as reuse, recycle and recovery as well as treatment efficiencies of each stages. This means that the method is developed in order to take into account the efficiencies of recycling and recovery technologies with regard to each material at the different end-of-life treatment stages. The recyclability and recoverability rate of rolling stock are each expressed as a percentage by mass (mass fraction in percent) after applying efficiency factors for each material of the rolling stock, which can potentially be reused, recycled or recovered.
The method defined in this document applies to the design of new rolling stock. However, it can be applied to other rolling stock depending on available information. In case there is a specific standard or method for parts and/or products used in the rolling stock, such standard or method should be applied, if relevant.
