Innovation and Sustainable Manufacturing: Research and Development addresses the manufacturing sustainability challenge from different points of view, drawing on research from different disciplines to shed light on the latest green technologies, green product design methods, and materials. Addressing the needs of practitioners as well as academics, this book examines a range of important themes such as environmental impacts and how to assess them, how to set boundary conditions to include or exclude downstream supply chains, how to improve sustainability without sacrificing productivity, the cost benefits of sustainability, and how to trace impacts in manufacturing. By providing a thorough review of global research in this field, Innovation and Sustainable Manufacturing acts as an ideal entry point into this discipline for researchers, and a guide to the latest developments for forward-thinking practitioners.
