Why we are building a European Remanufacturing Network

Download Download

Remanufacturing is a vital aspect of a circular economy. By keeping components, and thus their embedded materials, in use for longer, exposure to raw material scarcity can be limited. In addition, a well functioning remanufacturing network has the potential to create jobs and economic growth.Despite these distinct benefits, Europe is at risk of falling behind where remanufacturing is concerned. Where industrial competitors such as the US and China already have common strategies for remanufacturing within their industrial landscapes, the EU currently has no cross-sectoral activities in place for promoting the industry and facilitating knowledge transfer.To stimulate and improve remanufacturing in Europe, and to ensure that it becomes a mainstream business practice, Circle Economy is a cocreator of the European Remanufacturing Network, a €1.5 million initiative under the European Commission's Horizon 2020 funding. The ERN is an international partnership of experts in the field of remanufacturing, including the university of Strathclyde (Scotland), research company Fraunhofer (Germany), Linköping University (Sweden), VTT Technical Research Centre (Finland), Grenoble INP (France) and the Delft University of Technology (the Netherlands), led by UK based consultancy Oakdene Hollins, that aims to promote the practice of remanufacturing and to ensure that the sector becomes more competitive globally.The ERN project will start with an estimation of the future potential of the existing remanufacturing landscape in Europe. Best practices with regard to product design, remanufacturing business models and processes will then be disseminated. The goal is to actively engage the industry and provide it with the necessary tools, knowledge and partnerships.
