Life cycle design seeks to minimize the environmental burden associated with a product life cycle from raw materials acquisition through manufacturing, use, and end-of-life management. Two demonstration projects with industry were conducted to test, evaluate, and refine the life cycle design framework presented in the Life Cycle Design Guidance Manual (EPA 600/R-92/226)(PB93-164507), the predecessor to this report. Both AT&T Bell Labs and Allied Signal, Filters and Spark Plugs, applied this framework to the development of cleaner products. AT&T focused on achieving greater material and energy efficiency, improving recyclability, and using and releasing fewer toxic constituents in their design of a business telephone terminal. Allied Signal developed design criteria to guide the improvement of future engine oil filters. Major accomplishments and difficulties in implementing life cycle design are highlighted for each project.
