Abstract: Ecological harmless disposal of used technical consumer products will become mandatory for producers and importing companies. This disposal policy will focus on product and material loops; used products will be disassembled and the parts and materials then recycled. Owing to environmental and legislative reasons, the importance of disassembly as a step in the process of recycling is steadily rising. The article presents developed technologies and tools for the disassembly of consumer goods. The aim is to recover materials and reusable components within a semiautomatic pilot disassembly system. Different destructive processes were optimized to disassemble washing machines.
