Remanufacturing is a perfect example of circularity; instead of destroying or landfilling products at the end of their life, this industrial process, starting with disassembly, gives them another one.

 

Today digital technologies offer a new gateway for the expansion of remanufacturing, boosting innovation in the sector at an unprecedented pace, allowing the remanufacturers to know much more about the use-profile, locations and actual wear and tear, and eventually enabling them to maintain and upgrade products.

 

This paper identified recommendations to remove constraints and create strong incentives for remanufactured products.
