The Annual Sustainable Manufacturing Centre (SMC) Conference 2012 will take place on Wednesday,7 November 2012 from 9.15am to 2.00pm at the Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology (SIMTech), a research institute of the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR).

The theme of this year’s conference is Towards Energy and Material Efficient Manufacturing. Invited speakers from industry, government agencies and the research community will discuss challenges, opportunities, technologies, and successful cases in energy efficiency, carbon footprint assessment and reporting, applications in bio-based materials and composites, CO2 technologies for chemical-free cleaning and energy efficient machining, as well as relevant supporting financial assistance.

We are pleased to have with us at this conference, Mr David Jackson, Founder of CleanLogix, USA and partner of USI Technology, Singapore. For the past 28 years, David has spearheaded the development and commercialisation of more than a dozen products utilising recycled CO2 for cleaning, machining and thermal control applications. David will introduce the latest CO2 technologies and share cases on environmental-friendly cleaning and energy efficient manufacturing. USI Technology will also showcase CO2 technologies.

Economic and local legislations are pushing for energy efficiency in manufacturing. Mr Tay Cher Seng, Managing Director of Natflow will present on energy recovery technologies and some successful cases.

Driven by existing and emerging legislations in overseas markets, materials from renewable sources are increasingly preferred by product manufacturers for use in products and packaging. Dr Yuan Xiaowen, Senior Scientist in SIMTech with many years of R&D experience in New Zealand, will introduce the technical features and applications of bio-polymers and bio-composites. These new and high-value bio-polymers and bio-composite materials will be showcased in the exhibition.

The conference will also feature an array of other technologies for energy and material efficiency and sustainability in manufacturing. Participants can tap on the knowledge and technologies to develop capabilities for improving their own eco-performance.

Some 250 delegates from the manufacturing industry, government agencies and research organisations are expected to attend this non-chargeable event. Do register early to reserve a seat.
