Abstract [en]

This study focuses on different manufacturing processes and material choices

for products that are designed to help the future to be more sustainable. These

products were developed in a global project that explored the field and

subfields of urban mining. This thesis is a part of that project and is meant to

come with valuable input to the results. In this urban mining project two

products were developed.

The two different products that has been developed during this project is the

NIX and the UM Factory. They work together with keeping material on the

construction site when space is limited in order to reduce the transportation,

both for the environmental benefit and also from a cost perspective. Together

they will not only keep the material on the site but also refine them so they

can be used again.

This thesis will look into how these two products can be manufactured and

what materials is a suitable choice for the products. These two factors were

also thought about during the development of the products, both how to make

it as simple design that was easy to produce while still fulfilling the

requirements set. Also what materials might be a suitable choice for different

parts of the products is considered, in order to be reliable, easy to work with,

and relatively cheap. The study also explored some methods and materials

that might be worth looking into in a few years. Methods and materials that

today are undeveloped or not economically viable.
