About the Project
The aim of this proposed project is to develop an approach to take full advantage of reusing secondary materials in new product development by design. Product design is an important aspect to achieve this, only through good design, minimal design changes can occur in decision making during the product development process. However, it is the decision made at the early design stage would contribute the largest impact of a product in the circular economy model.
This project is supervised by Dr Wai M Cheung.
