REMADE Institute

About


The Reducing Embodied-energy and Decreasing Emissions (“REMADE”) Institute is the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)-led institute in the multiagency network known as Manufacturing USA, also known as the “National Network for Manufacturing Innovation” or “NNMI”. Since it was established four years ago, Manufacturing USA has grown from a single institute to a network of 13 institutes. Led by manufacturing experts renowned in their field, the Manufacturing USA Institutes have attracted over $2B in public/private investments, 1,300 companies, universities and industry associations. Each institute is charged with improving domestic manufacturing competitiveness through innovative new manufacturing techniques, technologies and offer new training and jobs for American workers.

The Sustainable Manufacturing Innovation Alliance was selected by the DOE on January 4, 2017 to lead this Institute in Rochester, NY. The goal of this $140 million manufacturing institute will be to find new and less expensive ways to reuse, recycle, and remanufacture metals, fibers, polymers, and electronic waste. Research and expertise will be contributed by a consortium of 26 universities, 44 companies, seven national labs, and 26 industry trade associations and foundations.
