Roadmaps

SMRT mainpage | Membership | Roadmaps

The ACS Presidential Roundtable on Sustainable Manufacturing has produced six briefs describing research roadmaps for advances in sustainable manufacturing technology. Completion of these documents came on the heels of a 2012 President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) report to President Obama on ensuring American leadership in advanced manufacturing, and the creation of the Advanced Manufacturing Partnership (AMP). AMP is a national effort to bring together stakeholders to identify and invest in emerging technologies with the potential to create high quality manufacturing jobs. With these roadmaps, the Roundtable strives to capitalize on this national initiative and contribute its scientific and technological expertise in sustainable manufacturing.
