Resources potential - certification beyond recycling rates

Country: 
Luxembourg

Demanufacturing plants are traditionally evaluated using recycling and reuse rates. This approach only takes into account the input flows in a recycling process. SuperDrecksKëscht (SDK) has developed a concept that takes full account of the idea of resource efficiency including energy generation. 

The concept of resources potential certification of demanufacturing plants meets the requirements of standard DIN ISO 14024:2018 and therefore allows transparent, verifiable, neutral and product-related evaluation of treatment, recycling and disposal plants.

Using this resource indicator puts demanufacturing plants in a position to show the actual volumes of raw materials recovered and the proportion used to generate energy; they can thus reveal the potential to save primary resources.

Main results

  • Transparent, verifiable, neutral and product-related evaluation of demanufacturing plants
  • The actual volumes of raw materials recovered and the proportion used for energy generation are shown and the savings in terms of primary resources are revealed
  • Efficient calculation tool for evaluating varied treatment processes at product recipients
  • Graphical display of the final output products and their value by means of colour coding.
