Adapting to the circular economy

08 December, 2017

This shows that future innovations in terms of research and development might be better directed to designs that allow simpler servicing, disassembling, repurposing parts and minimising waste during disposal. It will also place greater importance on the availability and economic feasibility of spare parts and make it easier for machines to be upgraded as technology advances, instead of the current tendency for wholesale disposal.

We are entering a period of significant change within industry, one that recognises the importance of our environment. BCAS members have always been at the forefront of this technology for the design, installation and ongoing service of compressed air systems, so I have every confidence that they will lead the way in this period of change.

As a member of Orgalime, the Engineering Industries Association and Pneurop, BCAS provides a voice and has an input into these changes in EU Directives. The Society is also a source of information and advice to help its members comply and be competitive.
