Green manufacturing’s Goal:

  • The goal of sustainability “Every company when it comes to green manufacturing should be conserving natural resources for future generations.”

Green manufacturing is not characterized by a specific machine, but by processes. It maximizes raw material uses and minimizes the waste. So now many companies are going with the process of green manufacturing.
