REMADE Overview

The Clean Energy Manufacturing Innovation Institute for Reducing Embodied-energy And Decreasing Emissions (REMADE) in Materials Manufacturing, launched in 2017 is the thirteenth Institute in the Manufacturing USA network. The Institute will focus on early stage applied research towards innovations that could dramatically reduce the energy required to manufacture key materials and improve overall manufacturing energy efficiency through increased material reuse, recycling, and remanufacturing. The Institute’s research and development projects will be performed through industrial partnerships under the following technology focus areas:

Technology Focus Areas

  • ​Information collection, standardization, and design tools for tracking materials, reducing waste, and predicting process-specific secondary feedstocks or reused materials
  • Rapid end-of-life and waste material gathering, identification, and sorting
  • Separation of mixed materials
  • Removal of trace contaminants
  • Robust and cost-effective reprocessing and disposal methods
  • Efficient material use during manufacturing
  • Waste stream separation and recovery
  • End-of-life (EOL) material reuse
  • Design of products for reuse/disassembly at EOL.
