The Sustainable Manufacturing Centre (SMC) is an industry innovation centre under the Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology (SIMTech), a research institute of the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR).

SMC was set up to help the manufacturing industry develop and implement innovative sustainable manufacturing technologies that reduce emissions, waste and toxicity. SMC currently offers research and core capabilities in:

  • Sustainability assessment tools and techniques
  • Carbon measurement and reduction strategies
  • Eco-design of sustainable products
  • Processing and application of sustainable materials
  • Knowledge and technologies for resource efficient manufacturing
  • Resource recovery and recycling from manufacturing waste
  • Remanufacturing
  • Sustainable packaging
  • Green supply chain management

If your company is looking for sustainable manufacturing solutions and technologies, or is interested to find out the environmental life cycle impact and carbon footprint of your products, do visit and contact the Sustainable Manufacturing Centre.

  1. Dear Sir/Ma’am,
    I am Sreeju Puthenparambil Vasudevan from Kerala, India,Currently doing My Master Thesis in Production Development and Management at Jonkoping University Sweden.

    In all over the world, we are facing lots of issues due to plastics. Plastics are the non-degradable thing which we can`t recycle. So, here I am looking for a “Sustainable Green Environment for a Better Tomorrow”. After my studies and a great deal of research, I have got an idea to manufacture 0% waste and 100% biodegradable and eco-friendly Green Fiber Bottle, which could replace all types of bottles and this product will change the Environmental Plastics Pollution. Further, I have prepared a detailed report as well as part of my sustainable product research. In this research, I using fully biodegradable materials like virgin fiber and other natural materials. I hope that you will be interested in meeting me so we can discuss more about this project on the telephone or in a meeting with you. I am looking forward to hearing from you soon.

    Thank and Regards
    Sreeju P.V
