About these proceedings


Non-renewable materials can no longer be disposed once humankind's ever increasing needs cannot be fulfilled anymore due to limited resources. Reuse and recycling become inevitable requirements for product and process design. Renewable resources must not be consumed in quantities higher than can be regained. New technologies have to be developed and applied for a Sustainable Product Development and Life Cycle Engineering to fulfill the needs of humankind, protecting public health, welfare, and environment.

The 8th Global Conference on Sustainable Manufacturing brings together some of the world’s leading experts to present a scientific conference in Abu Dhabi, one of the world’s fastest growing economies and a global leader in the development of sustainable technologies.

The conference will focus on 7 areas:

Value adding by sustainable manufacturing in the UAE
Potentials of renewables
Education for sustainability engineering
Green supply chain and transportation
Microelectronics and resource efficiency
Technology driven startups
Sustainable products and manufacturing processes

From the reviews:

“The present book explains advances in sustainable manufacturing with quality and innovation in eight sections. This book includes revised and extended versions of selected papers presented at the 8th Global Conference on Sustainable Manufacturing. … This book can be used for final undergraduate engineering course … or as a subject on sustainable manufacturing at the postgraduate level. Also, this book can serve as a useful reference for academics, researchers, mechanical, manufacturing, materials and industrial engineers, professional in related industries with sustainable manufacturing.” (J. Paulo Davim, International Journal of Machining and Machinability of Materials, Vol. 13 (1), 2013)
