REMADE Institute: Advancing the Nation in Sustainable Manufacturing

A Message from the Chief Executive Officer

Looking back over the past year, I am proud of the remarkable progress made since the launch of the Reducing Embodied Energy and Decreasing Emissions (REMADE) Insti- tute in May 2017. REMADE is the 14th Institute in the Manufacturing USA network, and is focused on technologies essential to reuse, recycle, and remanufacture materials such as metals, fibers, polymers and electronic waste. During its first year, REMADE established independent operations in Rochester, New York and was pleased to add new headquarters staff with years of accomplishments in business, research, and government. We also engaged a national member network of industrial, academic, and national lab partners. Driven by industry input, a technology roadmap was created, project calls held, and the first projects selected for award. As the Institute transitions from startup to full operation, the effort is focused on developing transformational technologies to significantly reduce energy consumption in U.S. manufacturing, while increasing material recycling, recovery, remanufacturing and reuse. Workforce development is also a priority, ensuring the U.S. workforce is prepared to deploy and manufacture REMADE-relevant technologies. We have a golden opportunity like never before in the history of industry, we have funding, a huge national plan for what to do and significant partnerships. Now it is up to all of us to execute this plan. Execution is everything. Thanks to the support of our consortium partners, and financial funding from the U.S. Department of Energy, REMADE is well positioned to deliver transformational technologies that advance the nation in sustainable manufacturing.
