HOUGHTON – Michigan Technological University is one of 85 partners in a US Department of Energy-funded $70 million energy-saving project called the  REMADE  (Reducing Embodied-energy and Decreasing Emissions) Institute. 

The project’s goal is to drive down the cost of technologies needed to reuse, recycle and remanufacture materials such as metals, fibers, polymers and electronic waste.  Ultimately REMADE hopes to achieve a 50 percent improvement in overall energy efficiency by 2027.

The REMADE Institute will be led by the Rochester Institute of Technology’s Golisano Institute for Sustainability in Rochester, New York.  It is the fifth Department of Energy institute in a multiagency network called Manufacturing USA or the National Network for Manufacturing Innovation.

Michigan Tech’s  Sustainable Futures Institute (SFI) is coordinating the involvement of Michigan Tech faculty and staff in this multidisciplinary research initiative. Research projects will focus on improving the ways that materials like plastics, metals, woody fibers and e-waste can be recycled and re-utilized in current or new product systems.
