Sustainable Manufacturing examines the environmental sustainability of a wide range of manufacturing processes surrounding energy, material waste and toxicity. With chapters addressing conventional and unconventional machining processes, and hot topics such as sustainability in additive manufacturing and remanufacturing, this book is the most complete guide to this topic available. Drawing on experts in both academia and industry, coverage addresses theoretical developments and practical improvements from R&D. This unique book will allow readers to compare the environmental sustainability of different manufacturing processes, while also providing advice on how to set them up to save on energy and material waste.

This book is part of a 4 volume set entitled Handbooks in Advanced Manufacturing. The other 3 address Advanced Machining and Finishing, Additive Manufacturing and Surface Treatment, and Advanced Welding and Deforming. 

Key Features

  • Provides a survey of the sustainability aspects of over 20 manufacturing processes, including both conventional and unconventional machining
  • Combines contributions from experts in industry with the latest academic research
  • Explains how to conduct lifecycle assessments of manufacturing processes
