NMIS Insights

Going full circle with the LMC: Helping industry embrace recycling and remanufacturing

NMIS Insights is a monthly series of breakfast seminars from the National Manufacturing Institute Scotland (NMIS).

The ‘take – make – dispose’ consumption model is becoming a thing of the past as businesses across different sectors embrace the circular economy through recycling and remanufacturing.

Providing big benefits, from enhanced sustainability to a lower bottom line, it can be difficult to know what help is out there to support your transition to a greener approach.

Learn about how we are helping local firms reimagine their manufacturing processes and business models using new technologies and innovative ideas to save money and the environment.    

You will also hear from Scotland’s Bravest Manufacturing Company, a local social enterprise that has opened up a sustainable new revenue stream following a successful collaboration with the Lightweight Manufacturing Centre (LMC), which is a specialist technology centre within the National Manufacturing Institute Scotland (NMIS).
