There has been significant progress over the past eight months since RIT’s Golisano Institute for Sustainability was selected by U.S. Department of Energy to lead the consortium of industries, universities, national labs, trade associations and foundations for the new Reducing EMbodied-Energy and Decreasing Emissions (REMADE) Institute. A non-profit corporation and governance committee have been established to oversee day-to-day operations, office headquarters have been opened on Lucius Gordon Drive, and several employees have been hired, including a chief operating officer, chief technology officer, finance director, marketing & communications director and others. Industry workshops have taken place to drive momentum and keep partners informed. REMADE’s mission 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.
