Resource efficient manufacturing
Our main research goal in this area is to provide industry with the opportunity to achieve a progressive change away from traditional manufacturing approaches to high value-added sustainable manufacturing methods.
We develop strategies, methodologies and enabling technologies to safeguard long-term economic sustainability but at the same time, support environmental sustainability.
To really have an impact on the resource efficiency of an organization we believe an multi-disciplinary and holistic approach must be taken. At Loughborough we have expertise in life-cycle analysis, sustainable product and process design, resource-efficient manufacturing technologies, sustainable business models and servitisation, organisational resilience, engineering management, supply chain management, innovation management, lean operations, process and enterprise modelling, information management and end-of-life processing and recycling technologies.
