Remanufacturing is a comprehensive and rigorous industrial process by which a previously sold, leased, used, worn, or non-functional product or part is returned to a “like-new” or “better-than-new” condition, from both a quality and performance perspective, through a controlled, reproducible, and sustainable process.
Remanufacturing saves on average 85% of energy, water, and material use compared to a newly manufactured product. It supports well over 180,000 full-time jobs and produces more than $45 billion of remanufactured goods each year.
