Smart Industry and Circular Economy

This course allows the introduction of the student inside the world of the Circular Economy in relation with the activities related to the Smart Industry, Connected Industry or Industry 4.0, Energy efficiency and sustainability.

Smart Industry is defined as well as the enable technologies where is based (Cloud Computing, Internet of Things, Big Data and Analytics, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Cybersecurity, Digital Twins, among others) and presenting the issues of mobility in large cities and solutions regarding a more personal use of the technology oriented to the people (Industry 5.0).

The course included several related concepts and techniques of the Circular Economy including a short foundation of linear economy and their disadvantages on future and sustainability as well as proposal on the energy saving, recycling and reuse of materials and products to reduce our impact on the environment. The course finishes with the presentation of the Energy efficiency synergy with the Circular Economy as one of the sectors more demanding on materials and components.
