Remanufacturing and the Circular Economy
CE@KTH is delighted to invite you to attend the webinar entitled “Remanufacturing and the Circular Economy” with Dr. Nabil Nasr. In this webinar, Dr. Nasr will discuss remanufacturing, a key technology enabler for circular economy, including its definition, benefits, history, and economics. Remanufacturing research and future trends will also be highlighted. Furthermore, An overview of the recently established REMADE Institute in the US will also be provided. This institute focuses its efforts on driving down the cost of technologies essential to reuse, recycle and remanufacture materials such as metals, fibers, polymers and electronic waste and aims to achieve significant improvement in energy efficiency in materials manufacturing by 2027.
Date and Time:
27 April 2022, 15:00-16:00 CEST
Dr. Nasr will present for around 45 minutes and then you will have the opportunity to ask questions directly to him. We are also organising a networking session before the webinar (speed-dating format using breakout rooms). You are welcome to join!
