Topic Collection Information

In today’s manufacturing industries, increased productivity, better surface quality, and cost reductions are essential. The machining process can be sustainable if raw materials are reduced and recycled, energy sources are green and efficient, and tools and cutting atmospheres are environmentally friendly. Moreover, an environment impact assessment plan including recovering waste and waste disposal strategy is crucial to achieving sustainability in industrial machining. In addition, sustainable machining should account for economic, ecological, and technological aspects promoting a circular economy.

We invite articles related to sustainable machining and green products in this special issue with an emphasis on achieving sustainability in industrial machining and product development. The articles are expected to address novel and effective strategies for sustainable machining and green product development. We hope that this issue will inspire further research and innovation in this area and contribute to global efforts toward a more sustainable industry future.
