Arabian Steel Industries Technical Advisor

 “Worldwide consumption and production — a driving force of the global economy — rest on the use of the natural environment and resources in a way that continues to have destructive impacts on the planet. Economic and social progress over the last century has been accompanied by environmental degradation that is endangering the very systems on which our future development — indeed, our very survival — depends.

Sustainability Matrix elements” that as per SDGs no 12 declare

And based on that we can define the main three elements of sustainability matrix which are environment, economic and social. Economic element care about transformation of linear economy to circular economy or green economy. Environment element care about transformation of social justice to environmental justice. Society element care about considering the social cost.

And the 4th important element can be added is the “Technology “ … which can be defined “Technology is the application of scientific knowledge for practical purposes or applications “ and  technology can be also classified into 6 main categories construction, transportation, communication , bio related,  energy, and finally manufacturing. And we can exceed the main role of technology should be “to facilitate not to complicate”, and the transformation of technology from traditional technology to sustainable technology is the main responsibility of all researchers, and RnD men.

And so traditional technology matrix elements could be defined as, product, production/manufacture and finally the Process, and we can exceed, the sustainable technology matrix element include, GLC technology,

Green product which applying the 4 Rs (reuse, reduce, recycle and recovery) or … zero waste role,

Lean (production / manufacturing) which applying role (make to order) not (make to stock) and finally

Clean process which targeted to achieved zero emissions role.


Green – Lean – Clean








GLC technology is for how far can the eco-technology facilitate not to complicate.
