FFI-Sustainable Production Technology: Environmentally adapted metal manufacturing processes; chemical, energy and waste material recycling (EnviroMan)

Start date 01/07/2012
End date The project is closed: 30/06/2015
​The overall vision for the project is a sustainable and waste free production, including the view on waste as a potential resource. The project is proposed as an integrated effort: i) to take advantage of previously gained achievements in the FFI-Component Manufacturer Cluster project ii) to demonstrate and evaluate new technologies according to feasibility for implementation in production and iii) to support the further development of approaches of importance for sustainable production. The project will handle and solve specific problems regarding (WP1) cleaning of process fluids and surfaces; (WP2) material recycling of residuals from foundry processes; (WP3) energy and environmental analysing, validation, integration; (WP4) pilot Energy data platform; and (WP5) project management and coordination.
