A propos de l'auteur
Aujourd’hui référente analyse de cycle de vie et éco-conception pour le groupe Nexans, leader dans le domaine des solutions de transmission d’énergie et de données, Lucie Domingo a centré ces travaux de recherche sur l’intégration de l’utilisation en éco-conception.Ses travaux de thèse ont porté sur le développement de modèles de l’utilisation compatible avec les méthodes d’éco-conception de produits. Ses travaux ont aussi porté sur les moyens d’intégrer l’éco-conception de façon systématique dans les organisations, l’efficacité énergétique pour les équipements électriques et électroniques et le développement de modèles de cycle de vie complexe pour l’éco-conception. La liste complète de ses publications est accesible sur Researchgate.
A propos de l'auteur
Associate Professor Maud Rio is a permanent research fellow at Grenoble Alpes University G-SCOP Laboratory. She is part of the Product Process Design Team (http://eco-conception.g-scop.grenoble-inp.fr). Maud’s research includes developing models and designing methods based on the approach of integrated design to boost environmental performance of product and processes in line with emerging technologies leading to new forms of consumption and production. She is currently the chief investigator of the IntéropèC project to support dynamic and flexible information exchanges between multi-disciplinary activities to practice ecodesign (AGIR – PEM). Other project includes the co-organisation with Orange© of the ATA 2016 International Conference & Thematic Workshop of EcoSD network on Usage integration during design. Maud has co-authored a number of research paper and reports linked with model federation between product designers and environmental experts to increase designers proactivity during the design process of products and services.Maud is also a lecturer in Mechanical Engineering in IUT’s Mechanical and Manufacturing Technological School of Grenoble (GMP). She is currently the course coordinator for a range of engineering topics related to sustainability, eco-design and life cycle assessment (LCA). In addition, she supervises undergraduate, postgraduate, and master students in related fields, as well as co-supervises PhD students in integrated design. Other responsibilities include international relationship coordinator for students at the IUT GMP. She collaborates with a number of academics and industries in the sector of design engineering from all around the world. She particularly seeks to improve the environmental dimension integration into engineering processes from various industrial contextes.Prior to this role, Maud has worked two years as a research fellow at RMIT University’s Centre for Design and Society in Australia. She has completed her PhD in 2012 after being graduated in mechanical design engineering and sustainable development in 2009 from the UTT (France).

The use phase is central to eco-design activities in all sectors. Various possibilities of eco-designing products are offered through usage consideration, matching different categories of products.

The in-use efficiency of high intensive energy-using products for instance is a deciding factor when eco-designing them. The European Commission recommends leading the global improvement of products’ environmental footprint by reducing the impacts generated during use. Energy efficiency also contributes to optimising autonomy for transportation systems (automotive in particular), or mobile mechatronics products, and usually benefits to the user.

The use-phase integration is also critical to the planning of high maintenance operations and to the improvement of their environmental performance. For highly-technical products, from aircrafts to mundane products such as clothes, maintenance can be a major environmental burden. Even for relatively passive products but with a long shelf-life, the use-phase integration plays an important rôle in measuring the effect of an extended lifespan in absorbing the environmental impacts over use time. Furniture, buildings, food, etc., all benefit from usage integration through the development of realistic use conditions for adequate dimensioning of shelf-life, and through proper communication to users.

Around 70 researchers from industry, academia and governmental institutions participated in the 2016 workshop on how eco-design of products and services can embrace the use phase? and had the opportunity to exchange with experts.

This book contains a synthesis of the main contributions presented during this workshop divided into two sections: good practices for use phase integration during the ecodesign of products and services, and, the opportunities to challenge this integration.
