Hi Rupert, thanks for your commentry on my proposal.
You have identified a interesting area regarding the final end phase of a product in its ability to allow its materials to be recovered. Ultimately the encouragement of product disassembly in the design phase would be desired goal, one way this may be achieved is by stimulating the culture of repairing goods and making this a feasible practice by consumers. Then with this reestablished culture, design teams will hopefully get the backing to consider and incorporate repairability and finally total disassembly into the products being created.
A great suggestion in a way to encourage this would be to associate repair with customisation and use already created platforms like the Nike ID customisation.
Many thanks again for your comments,
