Seizing circular economy opportunities in manufacturing

From 2018-06-20 to 2018-06-20, Brussels, BE
The EU-funded MEMAN project will be organising an event in Brussels, Belgium, on 20 June, 2018.
Over the next two decades, the consumption of energy and raw materials in manufacturing will increase by 40 %. The transition towards a circular economy is therefore a must, for both environmental reasons and the growth of the sector.

This event will investigate which barriers (financial, legislative, technological and non-regulatory) currently present obstacles to companies investing more in resource efficiency and also what opportunities this can bring for the competitiveness of the manufacturing industry.

Further, at the event experts will present a range of solutions that can lead to substantial resource savings in industrial processes, showing real-life examples from the metal mechanic sector. This will include innovations developed during the EU-funded research MEMAN project, which looks into the whole manufacturing value chain – as opposed to a single company – to make manufacturing processes more resource efficient.
