Nowadays, sustainable manufacturing systems gain further awareness and importance because of considering economic, environmental, and social factors. This study presents a comprehensive evaluation to gain knowledge about sustainable manufacturing systems and related basic concepts such as circular economy, industrial symbiosis, eco-industrial parks, and life cycle assessment. Moreover, some suggestions for future research areas are presented to help to fill gaps in this field after many studies from the related literature are evaluated in detail.
