MEMAN project tries to give a response to the 2 major drawbacks that have difficult the improvement of the energy and resource efficiency of industrial companies in Europe:: 1) Optimisation approaches typically focus on only one resource energy or raw materials, and usually energy due to its relevance for greenhouse gas emissions. 2) Optimisation approaches mainly focus on single company or single process optimisation; only most recently research approaches have been made to optimise elongated process chains in an integrated way. In this context MEMAN project is arguing for a Next wave of eco-innovation, addressing resource efficiency optimisation of whole manufacturing value chains instead of isolated single company / single process op ...
