Remanufacturing Introduction
Remanufacturing also known as “REMAN” is recreating the sale of products recovered to be like-new or better functionality
- offered estimate 40% to 60% less compared to new products and usually provide similar warranty as new products
- contributes to employment growth as it is highly labor intensive
- in theory, can result in a closed-loop society if all manufactured products are remanufactured
- 80% of recovered used products are retained for REMAN process
- most promising products and material recovery strategies from a value-added perspective
- significant economic, social, environmental and strategic importance
- USA is the world’s largest producer, consumer, and exporter of remanufactured products

 

REMAN Process Step
- collect and receive used product
- disassemble and inspect core components
- clean, refinish, and restore the core components
- dispose the waste from its process
- replace defects, worn, broken, or missing parts
- reassemble
- test for functional equivalence of a new product
- package
- resale

REMAN Environmental Impact
- reduces energy consumption, air pollution, and demand on the solid waste disposal systems
- avoids other production processes associated to environmental harm
- total amount of energy saved through remanufacturing comes to about 120 trillion BTUs globally
- reduces global emissions of greenhouse gases of 25-28 million tons per year
- major construction equipment manufacture can divert roughly 45 million kilograms for scrap from landfills annually by recovering 2 million cores per year
- remanufacturing uses 80-85% less energy than manufacturing
- contributes to environmental preservation and green growth


REMAN Cleaning & Corrosion Protection
- cost of cleaning can be on par with the cost of parts replacement
- main purpose of cleaning is to fully assess inspection and make the parts to be like new in condition
- multiple layers of cleaning processes are required during both manual and machine operations
- most crucial step during the remanufacturing process
- time spent on cleaning is vital as it takes up about 20% of the whole remanufacturing process time
- highly labor intensive and time consuming compared to automated initial manufacturing
