The Reducing Embodied-energy And Decreasing Emissions (“REMADE”) Institute is one of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)-led institutes in the multiagency network known as Manufacturing USA. The mission of the REMADE Institute is to enable the early stage applied research and development of key industrial platform technologies that could dramatically reduce the embodied energy and carbon emissions associated with industrial-scale materials production and processing. By focusing its efforts on the technologies that will eliminate and/or mitigate the technical and economic barriers that prevent greater material recycling, recovery, remanufacturing, and reuse, the REMADE Institute seeks to motivate the subsequent industry investments that will be required to complete technology development and deploy these technologies across the U.S. manufacturing eco-system.
