The conference also served to pay tribute to two great teachers and scientists meanings especially in the development of advanced materials and their processing: Prof. Bernd Kieback (University of Dresden) and Prof. I. S. Jawahir (University of Kentucky).

Professor I.S. Jawahir (University of Kentucky) defined a new paradigm (6R) for sustainable manufacturing in 2006.

"My faculty colleagues, staff, students and I constantly work with manufacturing companies on sustainability projects, helping them by applying our methodologies," said I.S. Jawahir, Ph.D., the James F. Hardymon chair in manufacturing systems, professor of mechanical engineering, and director of the Institute for Sustainable Manufacturing. ISM is currently working on about 30 to 40 different projects.

About 10 years ago, Jawahir and his colleagues introduced three more R's: Recover materials from end-of-life products, Redesign the next-generation products that can use recovered material, and Remanufacture. "We were the first to introduce these world-wide, and it is starting to catch on," he said.
"There will be more and more regulations and policies being issued for sustainability, sometimes negative, sometimes positive," Jawahir said. "Our job as academics and researchers is to provide manufacturers and other companies with a sense of belonging - to make the most of the regulations and policies, to make more profits, and to grow their businesses."
Economic Models for Sustainable Manufacturing: Study the economic analysis of sustainable products and processes. "We work with professors in business schools, including marketing, to learn how sustainable products and processes can be marketed profitably," said Jawahir. "While engineers can come up with great ideas, they usually don't know how to commercialize them."
When working on projects with manufacturers, ISM primarily focuses on three areas: improved products, improved processes, and improved systems. "In terms of products, by focusing on product design, we help companies develop products that are more sustainable, environmentally-benign and economically advantageous," Jawahir said. In terms of plant processes, ISM has developed advanced methodologies to monitor and control inefficiencies, reduce wastes, toxicities, etc. "In terms of enterprise-level systems, we cover a broader area, beyond plant boundaries, to include the supply chain," he said.
"The seminars and short courses are aimed at engineers and plant-level workers, including managers and supervisors," said Jawahir.
For companies interested in moving forward with sustainability, Jawahir recommends that they first need to know where they are in terms of sustainability before they can get started with anything. "A lot of companies try to engage in sustainability initiatives without having much scientific background or measurable targets," he said. Metrics have been established by ISM for sustainability evaluation at product, process and system levels for companies.

Dr. I.S. Jawahir
Dr. I.S. Jawahir of the University of Kentucky College of Engineering has joined the Center for a Sustainable Aluminum Industry (CSAI) to develop research using Six Sigma methodologies that will increase the level of recycling of UBC Aluminum products. This increased level of recycling will be shown to have positive effects on energy usage, environmental factors and employment opportunities.
Dr. Jawahir is the James F. Hardymon Chair in Manufacturing Systems and Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Kentucky. He earned a doctorate in Manufacturing Engineering at the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia, and has published over 130 research papers, including 72 refereed journal papers. He is also the holder of four patents, and has significant research funding from both the private and the public sector.
