This document establishes general principles for:
- Assessing the recyclability of energy-related products;
- Assessing the recoverability of energy-related products.
This document also considers:
- 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;
- The recyclability of critical raw materials (CRMs).
This document defines parameters which are applicable for the development of product or productgroup standards in order to calculate recyclability/recove
This document is not applicable to generate publicly available product information and compare products in absence of product standards based on this document.
Although this document can be used for a product or product-group, for the sake of a better readability only "product" is used throughout the rest of the document.
