Sustainable production approaches are critical because of the traditional link between environmental degradation and profit in manufacturing. Remanufacturing, a process of returning a used product to original performance specification from the customers’ perspectives with at least “as new” product warranty, is a strategy to break the link between environmental degradation and profit in manufacturing. Remanufacturing can be a profitable practice but is commonly poorly understood because of its relative novelty. If designed at the outset, Active Disassembly enables rapid non-destructive selfdisassembly at End-of-Life and reduces component damage to increase remanufacturing productivity. This paper explains the potential of ‘Active Disassembly’ (AD) and Design for Remanufacture to enhance remanufacturing profitability and reduced environmental impacts, and proposes further research.
