This ground-breaking study will examine the spend of councils in the North East, highlight where remanufacturing occurs and determine cost savings and carbon benefits. The study will then recommend ways for councils to engage remanufacturers to purchase remanufactured products. This study is showing that remanufacturing is now seen by government as a potential route to minimise environmental impact and reduce central government spend. To be kept informed of progress or suggest products that would be suitable for inclusion into the study, please contact Ben Walsh at
