Remanufacturing towards NetZero; Growing your remanufacturing capabilities
The remanufacturing market was valued at €11.5 billion in 2015* and is expected to continue to grow. Remanufacturing is defined as “Returning a product to at least its original performance with a warranty that is equivalent to or better than that of the newly manufactured product”. Taking this into consideration, there is a large potential to retain the value of a product beyond its initial lifespan. Remanufactured products can also contribute to a positive environmental impact compared to manufacturing from new materials (up to 98% CO2[MM1] reduction).
KTN, in partnership with University of Brighton, Innovate UK and a range of other stakeholders, are running a series of online workshops exploring this topic to build on existing evidence and activity with the aim of informing evidence based policy and funding to support remanufacturing opportunities.
This first workshop is for organisations already involved in remanufacturing and are looking to grow their activities.
(There will be a second workshop for those looking to adopt remanufacturing for the first time.)
Who should attend?
Companies and research organisations currently involved in remanufacturing across different sectors, are invited to attend this webinar where we will explore opportunities to help you grow – such as the adoption of digital technologies, what you think policy priorities should be, where are the innovation gaps and what can be done to help you grow your business into new sectors?
At this event, attendees will:
- Gather information about the status of remanufacturing from experts in the field
- Learn about the opportunities and challenges facing remanufacturing
- Participate in an interactive workshop aiming to drive the growth of remanufacturing
- Connect with other businesses engaged in remanufacturing
What to expect?
The workshops will be interactive and facilitated by experts from within KTN and external collaborators. We will be using tools such as Mural and Mentimeter to gather and capture thoughts from the audience.
This is your chance to have a say on remanufacturing’s role in the NetZero and “Build Back Better” agendas, as well as influence audiences such as Innovate UK, BEIS, DEFRA and DIT to listen to your thoughts and ensure they have all the information required to take action that will help your business grow.
The second workshop taking place on Tuesday 28th July is aimed at businesses and research organisations that are not involved in remanufacturing and will focus on the huge opportunity this market offers them.
