Green Manufacturing

Welcome to the green manufacturing blog. This is something I've been thinking about for some time...mostly due to the lack of information about manufacturing processes, systems and enterprises on green technologies, tools and metrics and examples of good, and not so good, implementations of green technology.

The contents come from a variety of sources ranging from magazine or other news articles (web or paper), technical journals and magazines, contacts with industry practitioners, and, most importantly, my students at UC Berkeley.

Our lab, Laboratory for Manufacturing and Sustainability (LMAS - lmas.berkeley.edu), is researching green manufacturing topics ranging from manufacturing process and system technologies for the energy sector, methods and tools for implementing green manufacturing, machine tool and process studies for assessing energy, materials and other resource (including water) use in manufacturing, green supply chains and design tools for enabling green manufacturing.

Although not easy to define, we are also working on sustainable manufacturing.

More to come.

Thanks for reading!
