The first Reman Path newsletter, 'Remanpath Circular', is now published - check it out here!
In this first edition (July 2019), we explain how remanufacturing can help industry transition to use natural resources more sustainably. Partners share their stories and images from recent remanufacturing events. We also feature our Expert View, with Q&A answers from David Fitzsimons, Director of the European Remanufacturing Council.
