Due to the depletion of natural resources, the shortage of dumping sites and the environmental pollution caused by hazardous chemical substances, there is a growing demand for the recycling of discarded products. The electrical home appliance industry has continued its efforts to develop easy-to-recycle products. In order to recognize the effects of these improvements and to identify subjects for future design for recycling (DFR), this study measures and analyzes the disassembly time and recycleability of TV sets. The results show that disassembly time is reduced by 6-20%, while recycleability improves by 20-25% for medium-size and larger TV sets. This illustrates the desirability of conducting DFR for TV sets, and highlights its effectiveness for preserving the environment
