Alkaya, Emrah; Demirer, Göksel Niyazi (Elsevier BV, 2014-02-15)
The aim of this research was to investigate the applicability of different sustainable production measures and demonstrate environmental and economical benefits in a woven fabric manufacturing mill in Bursa, Turkey. As a result of an Environmental Performance Evaluation (EPE) evaluation, five sustainable production applications were proposed and implemented to decrease water consumption, wastewater generation, energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions and salt (NaCl) consumption in the company. As a resu...

There are plenty of labels and certification schemes that assess environmental aspects of these establishments. However, their effectiveness is questionable, particularly from the side of sustainable design. This study endeavours to be a resource for further designs and to respond the need to assess the outcomes of the planning and design decisi...
