Scottish Institute of Remanufacture Announced
Environment Secretary Richard Lochhead recently unveiled plans for a Scottish Institute for Remanufacture, as well as the development of a Scottish Materials Brokerage Service.
The Scottish Institute of Remanufacture will be hosted by the University of Strathclyde and run in partnership with Heriot Watt University.
The £1.3m funding is over three years, with £1m from the Scottish Funding Council and £300k from Zero Waste Scotland. Companies based in Scotland have already pledged over £800k of funding, or in-kind support, for potential research projects for the Institute.
The estimated value of remanufacturing to the UK is £2.4-5.6 billion (source: UK All Party Parliamentary Sustainable Resource Group). Within Scotland, over 60 companies are already active in remanufacturing across a variety of sectors such as automotive, electronics, energy infrastructure, aerospace and marine services.
