The MAESTRI Total Efficiency framework
Doing more with less
Process industries represent the foremost part of the manufacturing base, around 20% of the total European manufacturing industry, which include:
- More than 450,000 individual enterprises (EU27)
- Employment of around 6.8 million citizens
- Generation of more than 1,600 billion € turnover.
Process industries are largely dependent on resources imports from international markets. Industry accounted for more than a quarter of total energy consumption in 2014 in Europe.
This represents both an opportunity and responsibility of this sector contribution to the sustainability challenges of European societies, being imperative to drastically reduce the environmental footprint and increase competitiveness and production systems efficiency.
Goal and vision
MAESTRI project aims to advance the sustainability of European manufacturing and process industries by providing a management system in the form of a flexible and scalable platform to promote and simplify the implementation of an innovative approach, the TOTAL EFFICIENCY FRAMEWORK.
Manufacturing Industries should deliver competitively priced goods and services that satisfy human needs and bring quality of life, by finding progressively smarter and finer trade-offs between business and sustainability concerns.
Gaps and solutions
Three main gaps for an effective implementation of energy and resource management were identified. To address these gaps, MAESTRI developed an innovative and integrated platform combining holistic efficiency assessment tools, a novel management system and an innovative approach for industrial symbiosis implementation.
Total Efficiency Framework
The overall aim is to promote improvement culture within process industries by assisting decision-making process, supporting the development of improvement strategies and helping on the definition of priorities to improve the companies' environmental and economic performance.
The Total Efficiency Approach approach is based on four main pillars:
1. An effective Management System targeted for process and continuous improvement;
2. Efficiency assessment tools to define improvement and optimization strategies and support decision making process;
3. Integration with Industrial Symbiosis concept addressing material and energy exchange;
4. An IoT Platform to simplify the concept implementation and ensure an integrated control of improvement process.
Each pillar will be further analysed in specific micro-courses that will be published in next months.
