Ecodesign

Ecodesign is a critical approach to product development that emphasizes environmental sustainability throughout the entire product lifecycle. Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) software plays a pivotal role in enabling ecodesign by providing quantitative insights into the environmental impacts of various design choices.

Ecodesign with Ecochain

Assess any material

Evaluate materials like metals, plastics, fabrics, glass and more. Access associated data on the environmental impacts including extraction, processing, transportation, and disposal. Design alternatives with lower carbon footprints, higher recyclability, and reduced toxicity.

Zoom into hotspots

Analyze the environmental impacts of different materials, components and manufacturing processes involved in the production of your product. Consider factors like energy consumption, water usage, waste generation, and emissions. Doing this enables you to identify the major contributors to your impact and make necessary changes.

Iterate design combinations

Ecodesign is an iterative process. By creating scenarios of your product design, you can validate your assumptions easily. Change and replace materials or components and assess the results instantly. Prepare to answer fundamental design questions upfront. Find out how using recycled content lowers the impact of your product.
