    • 1. Greening the Supply Chain “ Pollution Prevention for Product Systems” John O. Sparks U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Design for the Environment Program
    • 2. Extraction conversion Unsustainable Product Life Cycle Material Flows & Life Cycle Concepts Discharges to air, land, water in all stages Stuff Dispose Manufacturing Use
    • 3.
      • 12,000,000 new cars/light trucks made annually
        • about 20,000 parts per unit and most are out-sourced
      • Total finished product is 24,000,000 tons
      • Estimate about 3 lbs. non-product output per lb. of finished product
        • cleaners, lubricants, scrap, process sludges, etc.
        • could be much higher if process waters included
      • Non-product output approximately 72,000,000 tons
      • Most in the suppliers facilities
      • auto company & public ultimately pays for waste .
      OEM Supply Chains Example:Auto Assembly Impact
    • 4. Material Flows & Life Cycle Concepts GSC Vision :Sustainable Product Life Cycle Fewer discharges to air, land, water in all stages End-of-life Disassembly Assembly & Manufacturing Use Servicing Repair Inputs Dispose Re-manufacturing & Recycling Design
    • 5. Environmental Impact Potential: 4 Workshops
      • Reduced Electricity Demand:
        • 1, 880,000 – 1,915,000 kWh annually
      • Reduced CO 2 Emissions:
        • Transport related reductions
        • 149,800 – 150,200 lbs. annually
      • Reduced Transport Fuel Use:
        • 21,990 – 22,080 gallons annually
      • Reduced Solid Waste Disposal:
        • 278,000 – 319,000 lbs. Annually
      • Additional environmental opportunities:
        • Paint disposal reduction
        • Steel scrap reduction
