EN The most important aspect of sustainability in manufacturing is the preservation of energy and natural resources. For modern production, optimized processes that minimize negative impacts on the environment are becoming increasingly important. This can be achieved by increasing energy efficiency through low, clean, and renewable energy consumption. There are many ways to produce less pollution, emissions, and waste in machining: by using more environmentally friendly cooling methods; by applying methods that reduce or eliminate the need for utilization of cooling lubrication; improving the energy efficiency of machining operations; determining the optimal cutting conditions that save resources by increasing machining productivity or reducing the metal removal rate (MRR); minimizing power consumption; and reducing carbon dioxide emissions. This article gives an idea of modern manufacturing with a focus on analyzing the current state of machining operations in terms of saving production resources and ensuring more environmentally friendly production using greener cooling methods of machining such as Dry, Conventional cooling systems, Minimum quantity of lubricant (MQL), Minimum quantity of cooling lubrication (MQCL), Nanofluids, Biodegradable Vegetable Oils, Cryogenic Lubrication, and High-Pressure Cooling (HPC). Finally, the important modern trends of providing resource-saving and environmentally efficient technologies in modern sustainable manufacturing are discussed in this paper.
