Abstract: Factory-ECOMATION main objective is to conceive, define, design and demonstrate, through adequate industrial pilots, a new paradigm of factory where energy, emissions, and environmental-related aspects in general, are considered and included into the structure and management of the factory itself, at the same level and with the same importance of traditional criteria such as productivity and products quality. Cost-effective, highly productive, energy-efficient and near-zero-emissions production systems will be developed relying upon: definition of a holistic perspective of the economically and ecologically oriented production environment; development of a comprehensive sensing, monitoring and data evaluation system; extension and development of new technologies to increase energy efficiency by reducing consumption and recovering wasted energy; development of advanced emissions abatement technologies; introduction of a new adaptive management and automation platform to optimize production taking into account not only productivity targets but also eco and energy-oriented ones.
