Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This special issue of Sustainable Manufacturing aims to present current research activities employing the concepts and technologies of sustainable manufacturing to advance and promote the development of modern manufacturing. In recent years, the need for system sustainability and a globally increasing manufacturing, drive a gigantic demand for technology and strategies which will reduce production costs. Sustainable manufacturing, as an important concept of modern manufacturing, represents the future trends for production method and process is sustainability, green, lean, higher efficiency and less consumption and contamination.

We welcome submissions of state-of-the-art research of theoretical or practical significance that will support and foster technology improvements related to sustainable manufacturing. Papers on theory, method, and modeling as well as on application topics are all invited. Topical areas for consideration include, but are not limited to, green manufacturing, sustainable/cleaner manufacturing, reconfigurable robotic systems, eco‑innovation, design for sustainability, reconfigurable manufacturing systems, modular robots, high efficiency machining, high performance robotic machine tools, decentralized robot control system, advanced energy technology, renewable and nonrenewable energy.
