Cabinet Secretary, commissioned by Zero Waste Scotland and Scottish Enterprise, has published a report which examines just how valuable the remanufacturing industry – which employs some 17,000 people across the country – is to Scotland.
The report summarises the characteristics of the Scottish remanufacturing industry, including analysis of the key barriers, enablers and opportunities for the industry and provides recommendations for supporting the growth of the industry as part of the circular economy
The report identifies the major areas of remanufacturing activity in Scotland – the aerospace, automotive, energy, and rail sectors. There are other sectors which could also support significant remanufacturing activity, including ICT and medical equipment.
