Comments machine will include the in-line consideration of the energy needs for the specific process steps during their control and scheduling in order to reduce energy wastage and energy consumption peaks.
 In-situ micro-component robotic handling (fragile parts) method and the device Result title In-situ micro-component robotic handling (fragile parts) method and the device
 Powder materials prepared by advanced granulation techniques Result description Only a low amount of organic material (1 wt%) was used, in contrast to more conventional spray drying process (5-6 wt%). The remaining organic material was removed during a calcination step.
 Reducing the consumption of energy, while increasing the usage of renewable energy Taxon title Reducing the consumption of energy, while increasing the usage of renewable energy Comments machine will include the in-line consideration of the energy needs for the specific process steps during their control and scheduling in order to reduce energy wastage and energy consumption peaks.
 Material efficiency Taxon description Material efficiency is a description or metric which expresses the degree in which raw materials are consumed, incorporated, or wasted, as compared to previous measures in construction / manufacturing
