PORTUGAL - Energy projects


This project consisted on the application of a Design for Sustainability Methodology, using SInnDesign Checklists developed by LNEG (www.sinndesignproject.eu) to analyse the sustainability profile of the product and to identify improvement options. The new product shows an increase in the sustainability performance due mainly to the new design, production process and the new material adopted. [Download the case study]
