Today, manufacturing accounts for 25 percent of U.S. energy consumption. With improvements in materials production and processing, the United States could significantly increase manufacturing energy efficiency, which could also yield substantial economic savings. To help realize these opportunities, the REMADE Institute—a $140 million Manufacturing USA Institute co-funded by the U.S. Department of Energy—was established in May 2017.
The primary goal of REMADE is to develop technology solutions that will:
- reduce energy emissions through a reduction in primary material consumption and an increase in secondary feedstock use in energy-intensive industries,
- achieve feedstock “better than cost and energy parity” for key secondary materials, and
- promote widespread application of new enabling technologies to be broadly deployed across multiple industries
This report covers the critical focus areas the REMADE Institute is addressing to advance our nation in sustainable manufacturing and highlights the accomplishments of the institute and our members.
The REMADE Institute is proud of the collaborative effort of our members and would like to thank all who made it possible.
