Past Conferences

  • 12th GCSM 2014 - Johor Bahru

    The 12th GCSM was held from September 22nd to 24th 2014 at the Malaysian University of Technology (MUT) in Johor Bahru, Malaysia. It covered inter alia the topics sustainable manufacturing, remanufacturing, recycling, innovative energy conversion and education for sustainability engineering. In 24 sessions more than 140 participants from 30 countries contributed with 136 submissions. The corresponding papers were published via Elsevier.

    For the first time the "Blue Responsibility Award" ( has been awarded for outstanding engineering concepts covering a closed loop sanitation system.

    A full day Post Conference Workshop on "Remanufacturing in Malaysia" was held at the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur on September 25th. The workshop aimed to facilitate a personal discussion session with Malaysian remanufacturers on the issues and challenges they are facing for GCSM participants. The workshop also served as an exchange platform between the scientists and the Malaysian government to discuss on specific research projects between industrialized western countries and emerging countries in South East Asia for extended high-tech remanufacturing practices. Especially, newly established laws on producer responsibility demand innovative recycling solutions. Chances for reaching high disassembly depth through manual labor in countries with competitive salaries were identified. Furthermore, the technology transfer of highly automated remanufacturing and recycling systems was discussed.
  • 11th GCSM 2013 - Berlin

    On 23rd-25th September 2013, the 11th GCSM attracted representatives from science and industry from all over the world to the conference chair's scientific hometown Berlin, Germany. In 15 sessions 200 participants from more than 30 countries presented 135 contributions to the public.

    A special highlight awaited our guests on the second day during our "Special Session CRC 1026", in which an insight into the German National Science Foundation (DFG) funded Collaborative Research Centre (CRC) 1026 "Sustainable Manufacturing – Shaping Global Value Creation" was given by a walk through the Laboratory of Sustainable Manufacturing. Using the examples bicycle and turbo machine, the Laboratory for Sustainable Manufacturing showed how the CRC projects and connected projects advance the essential need for sustainability by technical innovation, new service systems and qualification processes.

    On the last day of the conference examples of global research in sustainable manufacturing were discussed and in the evening the conference participants let the event end with a Berlin evening in the testing field of the Fraunhofer PTK.
