What is Remanpath?
Remanpath is a workshop that aims to support SMEs in the building industry towards setting up remanufacturing activities in their own business.
Cities are rapidly consuming our finite material resources, and most of these resources go straight to the waste stream when buildings are demolished. During building demolition, valuable products are often discarded, when they could have been remanufactured and resold. Remanufacturing makes both environmental and economic sense, and we already have the technical solutions to do it. What’s missing now is a new systemic tructure, allowing different stakeholder in cities - architects, engineers, manufacturers, urban miners - to work together and close the building product loop.
