Abstract

VTT has implemented the demand of energy and resource efficiency in the framework of Ecodesign concept covering the whole material life cycle from material sources to material design and manufacturing, component life time optimisation and finally recycling concepts. The vision of the virtually supported Ecodesign concept is to create optimized and efficient machine and device components regarding their whole lifecycle by evolving multiscale modelling. In this presentation we will introduce our development work within our Ecodesign concept by giving two case examples including Cu flow in electrical motor and Ni flow in waste incinerator. In the first case we will discuss raw material scarcity based design criteria, technological challenges and possibilities of Cu substitution and finally energy efficiency in system level. In the latter we will discuss multiscale modelling approach starting from raw materials and new design criteria regarding performance, life time, maintenance strategies and energy efficiency in system level operation.
