Smart and Circular
ENTEG has strong active research lines on the subjects:

  • Smart Industry, where concepts such as Artificial intelligence, Sensoring, Big Bata and Robotization are applied in order to produce more efficiently, and
  • Circular Economy, an (ecological) shift of the way of producing and consuming materials. The latter entails waste prevention by preserving the value of products and materials, using renewable carbon (e.g. CO2, plastic recyclate and biomass) and changing business models to safeguard a smaller ecological footprint.

Based on these strengths, a group of ENTEG researchers launched a Smart Circular Alliance initiative (start in 2020). More information on this initiative can be found here. A landing page for the Alliance is here.
