      Abstract

      Manufacturing design traditionally approached as techno-economic aspect, but the emerging awareness created by UN-world commission on environment and development (WCED) from the early 1990’s, and the alarm of climatic and environmental issues has picked up to change the traditional design way to techno-economic-sustainable approach. This, in short, can be stated as a green manufacturing technology; the major challenge lying in inculcating the sustainable aspect into traditional manufacturing design is cost despite seeing many advantages such as waste reduction, energy consumption reduction, recycling and so on. Unless, there is a technology that proves to have an economic viable as well as technically sustainable the developing countries would hardly take-up initiation to move from traditional approach, otherwise a legislative compulsion calls for. The powder metallurgy is one of such promising non-traditional manufacturing process that possesses high potential for green manufacturing. The green manufacturing is not just about quality or environment or energy or recycling, but it’s a combination of all for the betterment of companies, employees, stakeholders and customers. The present state of art powder metallurgy process caters the need of green technological requirement, which is being reviewed in this article comprehensively.
