From turning aeroplanes into drinks cans to repairing broken parts instead of scrapping them, we must all consider how today's products can be effectively reused with minimal waste.

Remanufacturing is a circular economy approach that reduces waste and the carbon emissions produced to manufacture products and parts from scratch.

In contrast to recycling, it sees parts restored to their original functionality by replacing damaged or worn areas and provides other benefits including lower manufacturing costs and shorter lead times.
