  • Sharing platforms and new models to increase asset utilization
  • Intelligent materials enabling tracking and recovery
  • Advanced manufacturing for local and waste-free production
  • Takeback and demanufacturing systems
  • Smart logistics for distribution and reverse-distribution systems
  • Supply-chain tracking and transparency
