Sustainability assessment methods and tools to support decision-making in the process industries - SAMT

The aim of the SAMT project is to review and make recommendations about the most potential methods for evaluating sustainability in the process industry, focusing especially on energy and resource efficiency.

SAMT will collect, evaluate and communicate the experiences of leading industrial actors from cement, oil, metal, water, waste and chemical industry, and review the latest scientific developments within the field of sustainability assessment. A central outcome of the project is a strategy for implementing best practices across different sectors of the process industry.

SAMT is a coordination and support action that promotes cross-sectorial learning and uptake of the most promising tools by conducting case studies, organizing workshops and identifying needs for future R & D and standardization.

Project workshops are open to all industrial actors and interested stakeholders. All findings and recommendations produced by the project are publicly available on the project web site.
