CO2PE!: Cooperative Effort On Process Emissions In Manufacturing

Goal: The objective of CO2PE initiative is to cluster forces in different continents, involving machine builders as well as academics, to analyze exisitng and emerging manufacturing processes for their ecological impact in terms of direct and indirect emissions. Possible measures for systematic reduction in the  footprint of a wide range of manufacturing processes will be identified.

The invlovement of a large number of parties will assure an appropriate, statistical approach, covering multiple machine types and process-material combinations.

An important goalis to derive ecodesign guidelines for machine tool builders and best practice reference specifications for future generations of machine tools.

Participants: Over 50 organizations from the EU, USA, Japan, Australia, Brazil, and Canada.
