The University of Bayreath is one of 12 industrial and scientific partners of the European project ResCoM which is coordinated by the KTH (Royal Institute of Technology) in Stockholm and will start in November 2013. Bayreuth's part is to bring in its knowledge and experience in the field of remanufacturing which is one major strategy for closing product loops. The aim of the research project is to develop a software platform to demonstrate the benefits of closed-loop over conventional products, and a framework of methodologies and tools. ResCoM will equip industries with the tools required to design and distribute closed-loop products and thus promote remanufacturing. For more details, please go to the external weblink.
