There are numerous opportunities for increasing remanufacturing and reuse. Some of these opportunities can be explored below.
Increasing awareness of the benefits of a transition away from the linear make-use-dispose economy towards a more circular economy presents an opportunity for remanufacturing – an important circular economy strategy.
There are increasing calls for remanufacturing processes and terminology to be standardised to allow true remanufacturing to be distinguished from other activities. Standards could help increase the demand for remanufactured products.
Remanufacturing can be incorporated in a range of new business models, including service-based business models, which promote the development of closer relationships between the customer and the remanufacturer.
