With the Ecolizer 2.0 OVAM (Public Waste Agency of Flanders) presents a science based tool that can help increase the environmental friendliness of a design or product. The first Ecolizer dates back to the year 2005. Recently, all the extracted data has been updated and reprocessed into indicators based on “ReCiPe”, the new eco-indicator-method. Finally, the Ecolizer 2.0 is the first version in English. The OVAM hopes that offering a dynamic and up-to-date tool will inspire national and international designers and companies to create innovative and environmental friendly products.
