THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY INSTITUTE
REMADE is the only national institute focused entirely on developing innovative technologies to accelerate the U.S.’s transition to a Circular Economy.
In partnership with industry, academia, trade organizations, and national laboratories, REMADE enables early-stage applied research and development that will create jobs, dramatically reduce embodied energy and greenhouse gas emissions, and increase the supply and use of recycled materials.
“Across the nation and around the world, cleaner production, clean tech and adoption of a circular economy are recognized as critical drivers to a prosperous future.”
Nabil Nasr, CEO, The REMADE Institute
REMADE focuses its efforts on driving down the cost of technologies essential to reuse, remanufacture, and recycle energy-intensive materials: metals, including aluminum and steel; fibers, including paper and textiles; polymers, including plastics; and electronic scrap (e-scrap).
Develop technologies capable of reducing energy emissions through a reduction in primary material consumption and an increase in secondary feedstock use in energy-intensive industries.
Promote widespread application of new enabling technologies across multiple industries.
Develop technologies capable of achieving feedstock “better than cost and energy parity” for key secondary materials.
Educate, train, and develop the incumbent and future workforce to support deployment of REMADE technologies.
How is Success Measured?
Our Technical Performance Metrics (TPMs) are designed to benchmark what success looks like. These metrics were identified and outlined in our technology roadmap and are reviewed annually.
