The article addresses the issue of industrial product life cycle, respecting the principles of circular economy, in order to solve the challenges for Romanian industry according with European Union requirements. The Lifecycle Eco-Design Strategies are considered key issues regarding the sustainable development of industrial products. The authors have identified the correlations between the elements of Product Life Cycle Stages and Lifecycle Eco Design Strategies.
