REMADE, established under the Sustainable Manufacturing Innovation Alliance by the U.S. Department of Energy, focuses on enabling the early stage applied research and development of key industrial platform technologies that could dramatically reduce the embodied energy and carbon emissions associated with industrial-scale materials production and processing.
The Institute’s research will include the development of key platform technologies across five focus areas:
- (1) System analysis and integration
- (2) Design for reuse and disassembly
- (3) MFG materials optimization
- (4) Reman / EOL reuse
- (5) Recycling and recovery

Staying Current with REMADE:
August 17th - The REMADE Institute announced the selection of 9 projects for negotiation dedicated to improving the competitiveness of U.S. Manufacturing and advancing the circular economy.
These projects align with REMADE’s mission to drive down the cost of technologies essential to reuse, recycle and remanufacture materials such as metals, fibers, polymers and electronic waste. This is expected to save the U.S. manufacturing base billions in energy costs and will strengthen the nation’s economic competitiveness through cutting-edge innovation. REMADE is pursuing this mission by enabling early stage applied research and development of key industrial platform technologies that could dramatically reduce the embodied energy and carbon emissions associated with industrial-scale materials production and processing.

August 6th - Over the last few months, and with newly discovered spare time, many Americans have shifted their focus to the home and how to clean up, organize and downsize. With these efforts, inevitably comes the push to recycle more to better the world for generations to come. It is incredibly important for businesses to build on this momentum and do more, not less, to commit to circular economy solutions.
A survey conducted by The Recycling Partnership and SWNS has concluded that 85% of Americans strongly believe in recycling and 7 in 10 Americans said they would go out of their way to support a company that makes strong efforts to be sustainable.
