What is ECOFACT?
The energy performance of industrial production systems presents a significant challenge for the manufacturing sector. The EU-funded ECOFACT project aims to support manufacturing industries in optimizing the energy performance of their production systems with regard to restrictions such as time and resources. The project will introduce an innovative green marketing method based on the concept of energy and the environmental signature of the products.
Moreover, it will apply a data-driven method exploiting advanced ICT technologies to better adapt to consumer demands through customized sustainable production. Finally, it will establish a high-level platform in a multi-service approach, delivering an innovative integrated combination of functionalities for advanced energy-efficient, sustainable processes, and manufacturing management. The timeline of the ECOFACT project 958373 is Oct 2020-Sep 2024.

- Tofaş – Demo Site Visit
Recently, some members of the ECOFACT project visited the Tofaş demo site in Turkey. Tofaş manufactures both passenger cars and light commercial vehicles, find out more about Tofaş in our Demo Site Spotlight article.
On the trip there were representatives from CARTIF, FRAUNHOFER, CIRCE, SCHNEİDER ELECTRİC and LİNKS. The aim of the visit was to gain an understanding into the current process and machinery used in the TOFAS building. The team took photos of specific equipment/machinery required in project deliverables, gained insights into the various software & technology used and also discussed with Tofaş personnel involved with involved in the sustainability and environmental activities
Overall, it was a beneficial trip and we look forward to sharing further updates on our work with Tofaş and the relevant work packages.
