Research overview:
From rise of concern about environmental problems or the like, in these years, introduction of product development procedure that confines environmental load to the minimum through the whole span of lifecycle from manufacture to disposition of the product has been strongly demanded in domestic industry, too. In particular, many laws like recycling act were enforced in 2001 as the first year of recycling-type society, and in parallel to full start of green procurement by the government, it can be said essential for corporations to be requested hereafter to convert from throwaway economy to the recycling type. On such background, intra-prefectural companies have also to review escape from existing throwaway economy into the system of "resource recycling type", and study on its procedure or the like is strongly demanded. Accordingly, we contrive promotion in both directions of "making industry into environment" that purposes product production with little environmental load from the stage of product manufacture and "making environment into industry" that utilizes wastes newly as raw materials in other industrial fields.
