Supporting Remanufacturing — the backbone of the Circular Economy.

Work Programme

Our detailed 2024 work programme has been refined by our members and published in the Members’ Area. The types of activities undertaken by the Council are designed to:

Highlight the intellectual property (IP) issues relating to remanufacturing that need to be resolved (e.g. remanufactured items containing the patented components & brand names of OEMs that have been remanufactured by a third party).
Support member companies to promote business development opportunities.
Provide insight and evidence to OECD, UNEP, WEF, EU and others in policy making.
Promote public and profit-sector procurement of remanufactured and refurbished products.
Reach out to new audiences beyond those engineers, academics and policy makers already familiar with remanufacturing.
Identify issues of common interest, both amongst corporate members (in camera), and with EU and Member State policy makers (e.g. legislative barriers, standards, green public procurement, tax relief, communication of benefits & barriers, etc.)
Present evidence-based research and the examples offered by member organisations at relevant events.
Maintain relationships with the research community through the European Remanufacturing Network (ERN) and innovation themes with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and China Association of Circular Economy (CACE).
Support the expansion of the ReMaTec Trade Show in Amsterdam.
