Title : Global energy and other resources efficiency in manufacturing enterprises FoF-03-2014
Description : The consumption of energy and other resources often represents a major part of the cost of manufactured products. Energy and other resources savings need to be considered at several levels: machine, process, the whole factory and along the entire value chain. The development of new business models focusing on the collaboration of companies operating in the same value chain to increase resources and energy efficiency can bring important cost savings in products and increased competitiveness. Inter-company cooperation can be further facilitated by geographic proximity (Industrial Symbiosis). The ultimate objective is to increase competitiveness of the EU manufacturing sector while at the same time improving environmental performance.
This topic is particularly suitable for collaboration at international level, particularly under the IMS scheme.Project partnerships that include independent organisations from IMS regions are therefore encouraged. For a project to get the IMS label it must include independent organisations from at least two different IMS regions. The current member regions of IMS are the European Union, the United States of America, Mexico and the EFTA state of Norway.
Targeted countries : Mexico, United States of America
