Abstract

The purpose of this study is to compare the environmental impacts and energy consumption of a newly manufactured and a remanufactured diesel engine with respect to the processes involved in manufacturing of a new diesel engine as well as remanufacturing of a used diesel engine. The result of the study shows that a remanufactured diesel engine is better than a newly manufactured one in terms of the amount of energy consumed in the process of manufacture and the environmental impacts resulting from the life cycle of the manufacturing and remanufacturing processes.
