Seizing the opportunity of circular economy in manufacturing

Contributed by: Greenovate! Europe

From 2018-06-20 to 2018-06-20, Belgium
The consumption of energy and raw materials in manufacturing will increase by 40% over the next 20 years. Transitioning towards a circular economy therefore becomes a must, not only for environmental reasons, but also for the growth of the sector.
Seizing the opportunity of circular economy in manufacturing
This event will investigate which barriers (financial, legislative, technological and non-regulatory) currently prevent companies from investing more in resource efficiency and what are the opportunities that this can bring for the competitiveness of the manufacturing industry.

Experts will also present a range of solutions that can lead to substantial resource savings in industrial processes, showing real-life examples from the metal mechanic sector. The solutions presented will include innovations developed in the EU-funded research MEMAN project, which looks into the whole manufacturing value chain – rather than a single company – to make manufacturing processes more resource efficient.
