A Proposal of a New Methodology for the Optimization of the WEEE Management Process in a Company Producing Cathode Ray Tubes

This paper, through suitable energetic balances, has quantified the energy saving obtainable by reducing the quantity of raw materials (glass) feeding the process, through closed-loop recycling, of the cathode ray tube glass that has reached the end of its life cycle. For this purpose, the paper adopted a methodology called the FIAI Method. Such a method consists of the introduction of two parameters aiming at controlling both the practicability of the investment concerning the environmental improvements (FI) and the advantage that such intervention causes with regards to environmental impact and general energy saving (AI).
