Recolight have announced a new series of workshops to help manufacturers embed circular economy principles in the design of lighting products.
The one day in-person workshops will describe circular economy standards and specifications that companies can use to show the circularity of their products. They will also provide practical guidance on circular design issues including design for long and extended use, upgradeability and repairability, replaceability, choice of materials, use of recycled raw materials, and design for recovery. A series of case studies will be used to show how these requirements can be implemented in practice. Furthermore, participants have the option to bring their own company product to the workshop, for review by attendees, to consider how it might be adapted for greater circularity.
The workshops will feature a roundtable environment with a maximum of 12 delegates, giving the opportunity for full interaction, feedback, and questions for each topic. The workshops take place on four dates:
7 April – London
17 May – Birmingham
7 June – Leeds
14 June – London
To match the ethos of the event, and in compliance with Recolight’s own net zero ambitions, all venues are in easy walking distance of mainline stations, to encourage attendees to join using public transport.
The course is presented by Simon Fisher, founder and director of F Mark, a consultancy specialising in the design, development and engineering of lighting products and associated systems. Simon has previously delivered seminars on many topics relating to lighting product design. He is a Fellow of the Society of Light and Lighting and sits on technical committees relating to circular economy and remanufacturing of lighting, both at the Lighting Industry Association and The British Standards Institution.
