06 Jun 2013

Goal of the ENERGY GLOBE AWARD is to present successful sustainable projects focusing on energy efficiency, which conserve and protect planet's resources or that employ renewable energy, to a broad audience.

Melotte is proud to be awarded for the Belgian national level of the Energy Globe Award, the most prestigious environmental award worldwide.

An international jury, chaired by Maneka Gandhi, has evaluated all 1.051 submissions from 161 participating countries and selected the national winners which are also still running for the international award, Energy Globe World Award for Sustainability.

Mario Fleurinck, CEO Melotte, transforms contemporary disruptive industrial activities into innovative business models based on a sustainable process called Direct Digital Manufacturing (DDM). "We create local prosperity using a process with an international leverage". Meaning customized state-of-the-art technologies to reduce dramatically the amount of natural resources and energy necessary for production based on Additive Manu-facturing in metals (also called 3D Printing) in a full digital process without using molds.

Melotte's outstanding project "Manufacturing without Molds" represents an environmental damage reduction of factor 8 through design optimization, DDM and shorter supply chain focusing on the increase of social, economic as well as ecological added value.

"The future economy will rather be driven by welfare than financial prosperity."
