Initial Situation

Sustainability as a corporate goal gains an ever increasing importance and turned out to be a key factor of success in competition, both locally and internationally.


In this German Polish research project, the country-specific sustainability situation in manufacturing and remanufacturing processes will be assessed and optimized.

For this purpose a customized measurement system, adapted to the requirements of the remanufacturing processes will be developed. This system acquires relevant data on all dimensions of sustainability including energy and resource consumption of production equipment.

Project Goal

The goal of the bilateral research project is to develop a practical approach for manufacturing SMEs for assessing and improving the sustainability situation in their production and remanufacturing area.
