Granta Design


Contribution to the G.EN.ESI project

Granta are leading work packages two and three which focus on the development of the G.EN.ESI eco-design software tools and their integration with existing mechantronic design tools and design processes. The development of these tools will enable significant environmental efficiencies.

Interest and Expectations from the G.EN.ESI Project

Granta’s software platform will enable the G.EN.ESI eco-design methodology by supporting life cycle assessment tools within CAD interfaces for use during product conceptualisation.
