A STRUCTURAL METHOD FOR THE ASSESSMENT OF RECYCLABILITY OF AGRICULTURAL MACHINERY

Czes│aw Rze╝nik, Piotr Rybacki

 

ABSTRACT



Threat to the natural environment posed by technical objects, including agricultural machines, taken out of use is becoming an important problem in modern societies. Their management should be arranged through recycling. The recyclability of machines varies and at the stage of production ought to be determined and evaluated using appropriate methods. The methods used at present are either very complicated and difficult to use or over simplistic, so it is impossible to obtain objective evaluations. This study presents an original method to assess the recyclability of agricultural machinery, which takes into consideration the material composition and structure of machines, and partly eliminates the drawbacks of the methods used so far.

Key words: agricultural machine, method, recyclability..
