Abstract

Successful enterprises are distinguished by their sustainable development
reliant on their ability to learn and develop innovative solutions. Recyclability
(material and product design) and recycling (process design) emerge as
new paradigm for sustainable competitiveness.
The paper makes a critical evaluation of the most commonly tools and techniques
in use and suggests a redefinition of the concept of EcoDesign by integrating
End-of-Life activities to gain industrial metabolism. This approach
takes a broader innovation perspective, necessary to construct a sustainable innovation
community with material balance of the system. The paper suggests
a modular approach as generator for integrating embedded firm specific
elements into a renewal networked supply chain.
