Ecodesign tool for pyrotechny

Abstract : Ecodesign is widely integrated in the development of new products in a lot of industries. It concerns the conception but also the industrialization. Regarding ammunition, their environmental impact throughout all their life cycle has begun to be taken into account through eco-design methodology. Many software and tools have been proposed. They result from need of specific industry like automobile or organism, like ADEME for example. Even if the methodologies are quite similar, databases never include many chemical substances, except wide used polymers. For energetic materials or system these different tools are not convenient. Itʼs impossible to implement data base with explosives or pyrotechnic compositions. Even if their production process can be described, their environmental impact canʼt be assayed. For these reasons, ammunitionʼs life cycle analysis canʼt be performed. Actors of the pyrotechny joined together into a committee of the GTPS to elaborate a guide of eco-design, simple in use and adapted to the specific area of energetic materials. This tool completes the whole life cycle of the ammunition from energetic material production to system dismantling. It includes different criteria like regulation compliance (REACh, ROHs,…), environmental impact (human, aquatic, atmosphere), resources decreasing, recycling. Fictive ammunition with three levels of design were proposed to validate the pertinence and sensitivity of the chosen criteria. The presentation of results has been design to identify the environmental impact of the different part of the life cycle and validate the choice of conception in term of material and process.
