    Olivier VIDAL
    Université Grenoble Alpes, CNRS, France
    Dynamic Modelling of Material Demand and Supply in the context of Energy Transition

    Abstract: All human activities and prosperity of our societies depend on the availability of raw materials (mineral resources) and energy. The quantity of consumed base metals has been increasing at 3 à 5% during the last century, entailing a doubling of demand every fifteen to twenty years. If we continue the trend, more metal will have to be found in the next 30 years than it has been ever extracted. The shift toward low-carbon energy and sky-rocketed development of numerical technologies add new needs. The dynamic modelling of i) future global demand as a function of average per-capita GDP, population and technologies evolution, and ii) production as a function of ore future deposits quality and recycling capacity shed light on the necessary improvements along the lifecycle of raw materials to cope with the expected evolution of demand.

    CV: Olivier Vidal is a CNRS-INSU researcher at the Institut des Sciences de la Terre, Grenoble. After a PhD in experimental mineralogy, he specialised in the thermodynamic and kinetic modelling of mineral reactions, with applications in the fields of Earth geodynamics, storage of radioactive waste or CO2, and natural hydrogen production. His research is now focused on the energy-raw materials nexus in the context of energy transition to a low-carbon society. He has been scientific coordinator of the European network ERA-MIN on the industrial handling of non-energy raw materials (http://www.era-min-eu.org/), and he is involved in several multidisciplinary projects in collaboration with economists.

    Dr Mitsutaka MATSUMOTO
    AIST, Japan
    Product remanufacturing in Japan: Trends and challenges  

    Abstract: Promoting circular manufacturing of products is a key in achieving a circular economy. While circular manufacturing has been advanced in the last decades both in research and practices, there still exist barriers and challenges to address to further enhance the resource efficiencies of product life cycles. The main challenges today include the digitalization and globalization. Developing a further sophisticated closed-loops of products, their components, and materials is required, and the advancements of digital technologies provide the opportunities for the development. Also, extending the scope of the value chains of circular manufacturing from local to global gives opportunities to enhance resource efficiencies. The trends and challenges are presented based on the cases.

    CV: Dr. Mitsutaka Matsumoto is a senior researcher at AMRI (Advanced Manufacturing Research Institute) of AIST (National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology), Japan. Since he started working with AIST in 2006, he has been working on research and development in product life cycle engineering, remanufacturing, and research policy and management. In the last 5 years, he has been leading R&D projects on remanufacturing. He has also been involved in organizing Going Green EcoDesign conference which has been held in Japan and Asian countries biyearly.

    Prof Christoph HERRMANN
    TU Braunschweig, Germany
    Application of biological transformation to foster positive urban production  

    Abstract: Urbanization and the limited environmental carrying capacity of our planet are crucial challenges for human kind. Industrial value creation and the production of goods have a significant role in the worldwide emissions pattern. A biologically oriented conception of technical systems with the goal of a sustainable added value is summarized as "biological transformation". By bringing together the concentration of consumption, waste generation and more, in urban areas, with the biologicalisation of industrial value creation an opportunity arises to actively create bio-based positive urban production. Based on the principles of the biological transformation a framework is derived, stretching the design space between spatial urban levels and production life cycle stages, thereby fostering positive bio-based urban production. The design space is then applied, allocating current realization and envisioned cases as well as giving recommendations for future research topics.

    CV: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Christoph Herrmann is university professor for Sustainable Manufacturing & Life Cycle Engineering and co-director of IWF, Institute of Machine Tools and Production Technology, Technische Universität Braunschweig as well as director of the Fraunhofer Institute for Surface Engineering and Thin Films IST. Professor Herrmann has conducted various industry and research projects in the context of life cycle engineering and sustainable manufacturing on national and international level. He has published more than 300 papers and book publications as author, co-other and editor. Professor Herrmann is member of the International Academy for Production Engineering (CIRP).

  • Presentation Guidelines

    Guidelines for preparing your oral presentation

    Presenters in all sessions are required to use digital projection of a PowerPoint presentation. PowerPoint presentations should be prepared for use with PowerPoint 2016 (or earlier version) on a PC running Windows 10. If you have developed your presentation with an earlier version of PowerPoint, or have developed it on a Macintosh platform, it SHOULD project properly, but we strongly encourage you to preview it on a PC BEFORE arriving at the meeting to ensure that it will project properly. Projectors and screens with a 16:9 aspect ratio will be used. Please remember to create or adapt your presentations using 16:9 aspect ratio.
    The presentation of a slide talk or computer presentation is quite different from the presentation of the same information in an article. Keep in mind that you have only 15 minutes for your presentation and 5 more minutes for discussion with the audience (Questions and Answers period).

    Instruction for giving your oral presentation

    Presenters in all sessions are required to use digital projection of a PowerPoint presentation.
    1. Arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the beginning of your session and (i) introduce yourself to the chairpersons, and (ii) upload your presentation on the room PC.
    2. The electronic projection equipment provided in each room will include a PC equipped with Windows 10 and PowerPoint 2016. Please bring a backup of your Power Point presentation to the meeting on a USB Memory Device. It is highly recommended if you are a Macintosh user to test your presentation on a PC to verify it converts to WINDOWS format accurately. There will NOT be any MAC equipment available. There is a microphone at the podium but this may not be needed given the size of the room. A laser pointer is also available.
    3. Schedule. No scheduling change can be made. You have been allotted a total of 20 minutes, including Discussion/Q&A. The chairpersons have been instructed to require all speakers to adhere to this limit. The chairperson will remind you when you have spent 12 minutes on your presentation (i.e. 3-minute warning).
    4. Should unexpected circumstances prevent you from making your presentation, you must arrange for a substitute to present your paper and you must notify us (LCE2020@univ-grenoble-alpes.fr).
