Abstract : The flow of materials in a real recycling system can be demonstrated in a simplified manner by a recycling model system. The analysis of this system results in additional new goals and guide lines for design. The guide lines are interpreted by examples showing how a product can be designed in a recycling conform manner, i.e. each product should be prepared in an optimal way for the eventual reuse of the whole product and, after the end of product life, for regaining the residue materials. The guide lines point out to the future, but can be realised in part even today without additional cost.
