Last Chance for Industry Input into the REMADE Institute’s 5-Year Agenda

As announced here last week, ISRI is seeking your participation in The REMADE Institute’s survey on current technical and economic recycling challenges.

However, you must participate by the end of the week, September 30, the survey deadline. (If you have already participated in the survey for your company, thank you very much. You may go back into the survey and respond to what other survey-takers have said.)

REMADE is a $140-million, 5-year public-private partnership focused on driving down the cost of technologies essential to reuse, recycle and remanufacture materials such as metals, fibers, polymers and used electronics. ISRI is the key recycling voice within REMADE and Affiliate REMADE Member.

Last week, ISRI participated in REMADE’s Technology Roadmap Meeting for identifying the major reuse, recycling, and remanufacturing challenges to address by way of pre-competitive technology demonstrations. To help with technology roadmap development, REMADE prepared the following four separate anonymous surveys for identifying major challenges:

Survey participation from the recycling industry is essential to the success of REMADE because REMADE needs to address the right problems. Your company does not need to be a member of REMADE for you to participate in these surveys. While “Improving Recycling and Recovery” is the most-relevant survey, you may participate in the other surveys if you have input in those areas.

The survey is designed to be easy to complete. After finishing the survey, you will be sent a unique link. You will have the option to come back to the survey and continue to provide feedback. You will also have a chance to see the challenges that other companies are facing and anonymously share your experiences with others.

If you have any questions about these surveys or REMADE, please contact David Wagger, chief scientist / director of environmental management, at (202) 662-8533.
