Due to several regulations imposed by the National Green Tribunal (NGT) on dangerous emissions from industrial waste, environmentally friendly machining is becoming essential ingredient among industrial sector in a sustainable manner. This machining process is capable of significant reduction in waste by remanufacturing, reuse and recycling. This machining process covers an in-depth overview of these operations and practices which are most environmentally sustainable. In the paper different machining operations with applications of minimal quantity lubrication (MQL) are discussed for different engineering materials. This paper also enlighten on energy conservation during machining with useful data and results obtained under these Environment-friendly sustainable machining operations.
