On 24 January 2019, the Wuppertal Institute is organizing a workshop on remanufacturing as part of the EIT RawMaterials supported project “RemanPath – Building Lifelong Education Through Finding Company Path to Remanufacturing“.

Remanufacturing is a promising approach to the circular economy, offering benefits not only to the environment but also to manufacturers and customers. The reprocessing of products and product components opens up tremendous – often untapped – potential for manufacturing companies in the automotive, electronics, furniture and many other industries.

But what makes remanufacturing and what advantages does it offer? What can a business model look like? What are the requirements of the product design and what should be considered before the introduction in your own company? These questions are the focus of the workshop, which is aimed particularly at small and medium-sized enterprises.

The Head of the Department of Circular Economy Henning Wilts and the Scientific Staff Carina Koop, Susanne Fischer and Anne Müller from the Wuppertal Institute are organizing the workshop. In addition to lectures on circular economy and remanufacturing, there will also be a practice report from a remanufacturer and an interactive part.

The workshop will take place on Thursday, 24 January 2019 from 14:00 to 17:30 at the Wuppertal Institute, Döppersberg 19 in Wuppertal. Participation is free of charge.

Please contact Carina Koop by 15 January 2019 to register in advance.
