Green manufacturing implies taking into account all aspects related with economic and sustainable development of factories. All developed and emerging countries are tightening their regulations around environmental issues, and the general population is day by day becoming more conscientious about preserving nature, production, and employment. Green practices are key in all leading manufacturing sectors, such as automotive, aeronautics, windmill, heavy duty production, foundries, forges, and others.
For example, the European program for aeronautics is named Clean Sky. In addition, there is a growing tendency for cars to be electrical, windmills are widespread over our landscapes, recycling industries are introducing new technologies, etc. Clean and lean manufacturing are common concepts.
The Special Issue is open for contributions both in technology aspects and workshops management, even industrial policies applied in industrialized regions.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sustainability is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1900 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
