Manufacturers almost universally accept sustainability as a priority. But a universal definition of sustainability is elusive. The Georgia Tech Manufacturing Institute helps manufacturers address resulting systemic challenges, large and small:
- A new material could be instrumental in improving performance and design responsiveness, but what are its economic and environmental costs in the context of a lifecycle analysis?
- How might redeveloping former industrial properties into once-again productive manufacturing centers be made even more sustainable via the incorporation of recycled materials?
- How can closed-loop supply chains be established in industries without them – and improved in companies with them?
- What public policy would be most supportive of optimal energy consumption in manufacturing?
- What does nature teach us about design that can be incorporated by manufacturers?
