With an EU market potential of €90bn by 2030, remanufacturing is set to become an increasingly important aspect of the future manufacturing industry. It allows companies to strategically position themselves close to their customers whilst delivering economic and environmental savings, a recognised component of the Circular Economy.

The Centre for Remanufacturing and Reuse is proud to have been at the forefront of publicising and gaining support for remanufacturing across Europe. We quantified activity, benefits, barriers to and enablers of expansion across numerous sectors forming the basis of wider projects and policy attention.

Action to support remanufacturing has moved into a new phase. The work of the CRR is done, but remains as a legacy resource here for you. The new phase requires concerted action by like-minded companies to promote good practice and push for policy changes which fairly reward remanufacturing. This is being coordinated through our European venture, the Conseil Européen de Remanufacture (CER, European Remanufacturing Council).
