Samenvatting

QUOTES “I wanted to take ‘sustainability’ a step further and therefore, instead of focusing on implementing sustainable technology or anything of that matter, I wanted to know how the discounter culture could thrive in a completely new business model and economy based entirely upon natural capital restoration and zero waste. Thus, the idea of implementing closed loop models in low-price, mass production came forward.” “To turn away from the old-fashioned linear model a closed loop system, or a circular model is presented as an alternative. The idea of a closed loop system is to ensure that the lifecycle of a product stays in a continuous loop as long as possible.” “[Chapter 5 presents] three main approaches towards circular product development processes that are highly focused on the product lifecycle as a whole. This includes DESIGNING FOR PRODUCT LONGEVITY (DfL), DESIGN FOR RECYCLABILITY (DfR) and DESIGN FOR DISASSEMBLY (DfD). The design approaches are specifically those that involve low consumer participation efforts and highly depend on internal systematic efforts, considered to be relevant towards the discounter market as it involves easily adaptable [Product Development Processes].” RESEARCH QUESTION To what extent can a circular systematic product development process be implemented to the apparel section of the discounter market? SUB QUESTION What does a closed loop model mean (in general terms)? What is the current situation regarding closed loop models within the textile industry? Why is the discounter the right market to implement circular product development models to their apparel lines? How can discounters apply circular product development models to their apparel lines and that are the potential opportunities and limitations?
