Mainstreaming resource efficiency in manufacturing value chains

15 June, Brussels

Increasing global consumption and climate change put pressure on our current economic model. Today around 50% of costs in the manufacturing sector are related to raw materials, energy and water used in industrial processes. Optimising the use of resources is therefore one of the main challenges the manufacturing industry is facing today. But improving resource efficiency is not only crucial from an environmental point of view; it also proves highly profitable for the economic competitiveness of manufacturing industries.

Join the debate on 15 June in Brussels on how to Mainstream resource efficiency in manufacturing value chains. This workshop, organised within the MEMAN project, gives the opportunity to learn more about the latest innovations to bring substantial resource savings in industrial processes. The event will also show the results from real-life implementation in the metal mechanic sector, such as in aerospace and automotive companies, which can serve as a model for other sectors.

What is MEMAN?

The MEMAN project supports European companies in the metal mechanical sector in their efforts to maximise their resource saving potential and increase competitiveness. The project is based on an innovative approach that addresses optimisation of the entire manufacturing value chain instead of isolated single company or process optimisation, and includes energy, raw materials, and other supplies.

The MEMAN project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Programme under grant agreement no.636926
