    The scenarios on the Future of Manufacturing in Europe 2015-2020 (FutMan) offer imaginative pictures about potential socio-economic developments and future technologies that are likely to shape the European manufacturing sector over the coming years.

  • Emerging Global Trends in Advanced Manufacturing

    This report is a result of interviews with almost 90 industry, academic, and government experts in 7 countries (US, Japan, Germany, Korea, UK, Brazil, China) in four technology areas: semiconductors, advanced materials (with a focus on integrated computational materials engineering), additive manufacturing, and biomanufacturing (with a focus on synthetic biology). Over the next 10 years, advances in manufacturing will become networked. In 20 years, manufacturing will be data-intensive, and an advanced workforce will be needed to develop and maintain these advances.

  • A trapped field of 17.6 T in melt-processed, bulk Gd-Ba-Cu-O reinforced with shrink-fit steel

    A world record that has stood for more than a decade has been broken, harnessing the equivalent of three tonnes of force inside a golf ball-sized sample of material. This research demonstrates the potential of high-temperature superconductors for: flywheels for energy storage, 'magnetic separators', which can be used in mineral refinement and pollution control, and in high-speed levitating monorail trains.

  • The circular model - an overview

    This overview explains the concept of a circular economy or an industrial economy that is restorative by intention; aims to rely on renewable energy; minimizes, tracks, and hopefully eliminates the use of toxic chemicals; and eradicates waste through careful design. The concept of the circular economy is grounded in the study of non-linear, living systems.

  • Blood minerals are electronics industry's dirty secret

    Last week the US Securities and Exchange Commission's deadline passed for 1200 US-listed companies to report on whether any metal in their microchips comes from mines controlled by these militias. While a few, like Intel, provided independently audited reports to the SEC, the majority filed reports saying their sources of tin, tungsten, tantalum and gold – collectively known as the 3TG metals – were "DRC conflict indeterminable".

  • Supreme Court Ruling on GHGs Equals Brighter Future for Manufacturers

    Few sectors had as much to lose as the U.S. chemical industry which today has announced over $100 billion in investments in new plants, factory restarts and expansions that are projected to create and support nearly 370,000 new jobs. For this reason, the American Chemistry Council appealed to the courts to rein in the EPA.
