Abstract

From the consumer perspective, classifying a product regarding its environmental impact is a difficult task because relevant knowledge is usually not only diverse, but also distributed over several information sources. In this work, an analysis of mobile “green” applications formed the basis of a mobile application, which aims at providing all recycling-related information in-situ. Its domain model integrates recycling knowledge from several information sources and is capable of decomposing a product into its elementary parts. The mobile application enables the user to initiate interaction with this model over three different ways of describing a product. Beside insights concerning information access and user interaction, a first evaluation of the prototype indicates that the employed fused domain model may outperform results achieved with a traditional approach to web-based information search concerning recycling information.
