Innovative British technology and energy saving strategies for industry will be centre stage at a major conference in South Yorkshire next month.
The Manufacturing Sustainability Conference takes place at the Magna Science Adventure Centre in Rotherham on the eve of MADE: The Entrepreneur Festival.
The conference is the brainchild of EMSc (UK), the Templeborough-based business behind the revolutionary Star range of voltage optimisation systems for saving on electricity in factories, commercial operations and homes.
Although there is still a month to go before the conference, more than 80 per cent of the seats at the conference have already been filled. Meanwhile, a growing number of industry bodies and associations are lending their support to the conference.
“We are delighted and overwhelmed by the response to the conference,” says Dr Alex Mardapittas.
“We knew when we planned the event that there is a desire to learn more about sustainability, but we had no idea that the manufacturing sector would be this enthused about finding ways to improve energy efficiency.”
“We are also very excited about collaborating with MADE: The Entrepreneur Festival, which will bring together great British inventors, designers, manufacturers, business owners, budding entrepreneurs and UK policy-makers.”
Speakers will include Dr Mardapittas and Brian Young, director general of the British Frozen Food Federation, representatives from environmental consultancy Blue Castle and from Rotherham’s most profitable company, mechanical seal manufacturer AESSEAL.
EMSc will also be unveiling the latest addition to its innovative range of energy saving equipment at the conference.
The Manufacturing Sustainability Conference takes place on Tuesday, September 18 and bookings for the can be made via www.ems-uk.org, or by calling 01709 836200. For more information on MADE: The Entrepreneur Festival, which starts the following day, visit: http://www.madefestival.com/.
