Best practices for designing and implementing sustainable manufacturing operationsThe second volume of the Wiley Series in Environmentally Conscious Engineering. Environmentally Conscious Manufacturing, shows you how to design and implement manufacturing processes and systems that are environmentally friendly and conform to regulations. Each chapter has been written by one or more experts who, based on their hands-on field experience, offer detailed coverage of such critical issues as metalworking and metalworking fluids; metal finishing and electroplating processes; and particulate emissions and air quality. Moreover, you learn how to satisfy key business objectives, such as maximizing profits and productivity, while meeting environmental objectives at the same time.Chapters include: Environmentally Benign Manufacturing Design for Environment (DfE) Organization, Management, and Improvement of Manufacturing Systems Manufacturing Systems Evaluation Prevention of Metalworking Pollution: Environmentally Conscious Manufacturing at the Machine Tool Air Quality in Manufacturing Environmentally Conscious Electronics Manufacturing End-of-Life Electronic Product Disassembly and Recycling Metal Finishing and Electroplating Industrial Energy Efficiency Industrial Environmental Compliance RegulationsEach chapter provides case studies and examples that demonstrate how to effectively plan for and implement environmentally friendly manufacturing processes. Figures illustrate key manufacturing and design principles, and tables provide at-a-glance summaries of key data. Finally, references at the end of each chapter enable you to investigate individual topics in greater depth.Turn to all of the books in the Wiley Series in Environmentally Conscious Engineering for the most cutting-edge, environmentally friendly engineering practices and technologies.Kutz, Myer is the author of 'Environmentally Conscious Manufacturing ', published 2007 under ISBN 9780471726371 and ISBN 0471726370.
