Remanufacturing and (Beneficial) re-use are widely accepted channels in 9R methodology and established pillars of Circular Economy. This webinar reviews these two key strategies and their adoption in different industrial sectors. It reviews the key barriers faced by manufacturers in implementing these methodologies and discusses the possible solutions to those barriers. The webinar also discusses the impact of these strategies on sustainability, material efficiency and the economic and social benefits. Finally, two partner examples from DOE’s Better Plants partners – one on remanufacturing of components in the heavy vehicles sector and one on beneficial reuse of spent foundry sand, a non-hazardous solid waste – is discussed.
