New advanced manufacturing technologies are crucial to bring a change and implement policy objectives related to the circular economy. These technologies are increasingly transforming all sectors of the manufacturing industry. Greater digitalisation – thanks to advances in data, analytics and connectivity – provides immense opportunities for the realisation of sustainable and resource-saving manufacturing, Improvements in the collection and use of data, together with new technologies like Additive Manufacturing, optimise business operations, maximise energy efficiency and use fewer resources more efficiently.
