ABSTRACT
EcoDesign software tool ATROiD (Assessment Tool for Recycling Oriented Design) has been developed to support design engineers to evaluate and improve products on environmental aspects. The tool mainly consists of three levels including assessment, analysis and improvement. ATROiD shows various variables to assess and analyze the grade of recyclability of the product. Results of this process give a direction to improve the design towards least end-of-life costs and highest end-of'-life performance. The tool has been applied to LG Electronics home appliances such as refrigerators, air conditioners and washing machines, and its usefulness was clarified.
