Technical improvements, governmental initiatives and changes in industry structures challenge enterprises especially in fast growing economies such as China and Chile. Supply chains are no longer linear arrangements of processes ending at a final consumer; rather there is an increasing shift to recycling, and by-products are used in other supply chains.

For an integrated assessment of mass and energy flows the specification and detailed mapping of the technical requirements and the material properties are essential. Furthermore, new business concepts are required implementing organizational and technical innovation in inter-enterprise applications.


During this workshop a special focus is set on industrializing countries. Sessions of the workshop concentrate on research and industry applications in the following fields:
Techniques for Cleaner Production
Capacity Planning in Dynamic Markets
Process Optimization in Industry
Application of the Pinch Analyses
Decision Support for Industrial Planning
Business Concepts for Process Innovation in Inter-Enterprise Applications
A poster exhibition complements the workshop.
