Hieß das früher nicht schlicht Recycling oder Stoffkreislauf? Oder was
ist das neue an Cradle-to-Cradle?
Jein. Recycling und Stoffkreislauf sind einfach zu unpräzise.
hier ist eine sehr gute Darstellung des Ursprung des Konzepts:
"there are substantial economic differences between reusing goods and
components versus recycling molecules"
also: das was man gemeinhin unter "Recycling" kennt ist in Wahrheit
im Detail geschildert hier:
* recycling is often outrageously
expensive and so environmentally deleterious that it would
be better to put the stuff in a landfill in the first place.
* recycling is downcycling (reusing a product at a lower quality
level, usually because of degradation or contamination by other
materials. office paper becomes toilet paper, for instance -
an aluminum can has different alloys of aluminum in the
can's tops, bottom and inside. recycled, the alloys are
melted together, producing a single inferior product...)
* sometimes the recycling process itself produces additional toxic
waste. for example, recycling plastic bottles into that groovy
fleece jacket means bringing toxic antimony into contact
with your skin.
The famous three Rs?reduce, reuse, recycle?are steadily gaining popularity
in the home as well as the workplace. Reduction, reuse, and recycling slow
down the rates of contamination and depletion but do not stop these
Recycling is more expensive than it needs to be, partly because
traditional recycling tries to force materials into more lifetimes than
they were designed for. Very few objects were designed with recycling in
mind. If the process is truly to save money and materials, products must
be designed from the very beginning to be recycled or even ?upcycled??a
term we use to describe the return to industrial systems of materials with
improved, rather than degraded, quality.
Ist das Neue damit klar herausgearbeitet?
