The Circular Economy Institute

Accelerating the Transition to a Circular Economy

Today, manufacturing accounts for 25% of U.S. energy consumption at a cost of $150 billion. Industry is also the third largest contributor to U.S. greenhouse gas emissions after transportation and electricity at 23%. Factor in the electricity consumed by the industrial sector, and industry becomes the single largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions in the nation at 30%.

Our experts, together with our partners, are working to reduce those amounts.
In fact, reducing embodied energy and decreasing emissions is in our name: REMADE.

April 10-11, 2024

2024 Conference

Together, we recently advanced the national conversation on how a circular approach and sustainable manufacturing can support the nation’s efforts to meet its energy, environmental and economic goals.

Major Initiatives

Impacts & Metrics

Current REMADE technologies are capable of reducing U.S. manufacturing’s emissions by more than 10% per year, making them critically important in the fight against climate change and in the race to net-zero by 2050.

The REMADE Institute is committed to accelerating the adoption of the Circular Economy through the ongoing development of cutting-edge sustainable manufacturing technologies to make real, near-term energy, environmental, industrial decarbonization, and economic impacts.

More Than the Power of One

Together, we have the power to accomplish what no one organization could on its own.
