Challenges for Remanufacturing
Some of the Barriers
Whilst there is a great deal of opportunity for remanufacturing in Scotland there are a few barriers that need to be addressed:
There is an overall lack of awareness of remanufacturing, from both consumers and manufacturers. Part of the problem is definition – there are a lot of “REs” out there: re-use, refurbish, repair, recondition. For remanufacture there is also the lack of a universally accepted and recognised definition.
