Green Manufacturing Helps Create More With Less Energy | http://t.co/MzPFoDnV

Green manufacturing is not only about decarbonizing industry’s energy system. It is equally about using sustainable material flows that are at least carbon-neutral.
Reducing waste and recycling materials have to play a major role. But with increasingly complex, miniaturised products using multiple, composite materials, material recovery results in new challenges. Examples of such products are personal electronic devices, batteries, solar panels etc.
Low carbon material streams are likely to become one of the major remaining challenges in an 80-95% greenhouse gas reduction scenario.
