Sustainable manufacturing: reduce production costs by optimizing energy efficiency and environmental impact


Tue 24 Nov 2015

Event description

The conference will aim to present the results obtained in the context of two European projects that have as their common denominator the optimization and energy efficiency in industrial environments: through the sustainable approaches that will be illustrated, it will be possible to develop high-tech factories, suitable to guarantee competitiveness and energy, ecological and economic advantage.

In particular, the projects will be presented:

AREUS – “Automation and Robotics for European Sustainable Manufacturing” for the new electromechanical architectures of future industrial robots and automated factories, to meet the criteria of greater environmental and economic sustainability. The project involves 10 partners from 6 European countries (Italy, Germany, Latvia, Sweden, Finland and Denmark) and collects experiences from the industrial and academic world, such as the University of Modena and Reggio, the Riga Technical University (Latvia ), Chalmers University of Technology (Sweden), Daimler AG (Germany, which includes the Mercedes division), KUKA Robotics (also in Germany) and Danfoss A / S (Denmark).

REEMAIN – a project directed and coordinated by the Spanish research center Cartif, which aims to promote energy efficiency and renewable energy in manufacturing contexts throughout Europe and which sees the collaboration of 16 partners from seven European countries, including which CRIT and the SCM company from Rimini, the Fraunhofer IWU Institute, the De Montfort University English, the Basque research consortium Ikerlan, the Spanish Association for Standardization and Certification (Aenor), the Turkish textile company Bossa and an important food company of the Basque Country (Gullón).
