Today, additive manufacturing is considered as the key technology, promising high-performance components via short development processes and flexible manufacturing.
With new and reinvented product types the fabrication efficiency can be improved and the potential of environmental benefits by adopting new business models is visible. Find out why Additive Manufacturing offers many opportunities and be aware of its main challenges.
Circular Economy needs more than traditional R&D and requires a holistic approach for related technologies, it needs changes in entire systems and joint efforts by the industry, government and researchers.
The process is based on the Cradle to Cradle principle, which focus on products they are part of a technical or biological cycle and can be recycled indefinitely. Learn more about trends and requirements within reinterpretation of recycling.
