The Environmental Materials Information Technology (EMIT) Consortium is a collaborative project launched by the UK's National Physical Laboratory (NPL), Granta Design, and industrial partners including Eurocopter, Emerson Electric, Rolls-Royce, and NASA. It is open to new members.
Controlling the environmental impact of products and meeting environmental regulations, such as REACH, are becoming critical success factors for engineering enterprises. Materials decisions are central to these issues, and so companies need:
Few engineering enterprises have begun to develop such a portfolio. The Consortium is accelerating this process. Building on Granta Design's existing materials software and data for eco design (see separate entry for Granta Design), the Consortium aims not only to develop new ‘point solutions’ to key eco design problems, but to do so within a framework that enables an integrated approach to environmental issues across the product lifecycle. Consortium members get the latest software tools and data, a formal role in prioritising future software developments (thus ensuring that their critical needs are met), and networking and training that helps them to develop a best practice approach.
This product profile describes the features and applications of the ElectroGreen™–Xylene substitute for electronics.
The Stäubli Megawatt Charging System (MCS) offers rapid and effortless charging, allowing drivers to manually charge their electric heavy-duty vehicles without relying on robots or supporting machines.
Anguil's robust Vapor Combustion Unit (VCU) can handle a wide range of emission flow rates. It is as easy to use as an enclosed flare and as effective as a thermal oxidizer.
This interview with Jeff Retzke examines how Denali is revitalizing mine sites and restoring ecosystems through innovative reclamation practices.
In this interview, AZoCleantech speaks to Anguil about the decarbonization of battery manufacturing,
and how to make the industry greener from testing to recycling.
In this interview, AZoCleantech talks to Olivia Madamba about Ethylene Oxide (EtO) opportunities and the new regulations proposed by the EPA.
