ResCoM, which stands for Resource Conservative Manufacturing, has developed a collection of methodologies and tools for the implementation of closed-loop manufacturing systems. Co-funded by the European Commission, the project concluded in October 2017. The ResCoM outcomes help designers and manufacturers understand how collection, remanufacturing and reuse of products can lead to more profitable, resource-efficient and resilient business practices compared to the current linear manufacturing system. The platform and tools are accompanied by a series of industrial case studies demonstrating the benefits of its application across various industries. ResCoM is the predecessor of the ReCiPSS.

ERN also is a project that was concluded in 2017, that deals with remanufacturing good practice in the EU, also funded via Horizon 2020.
With an EU market potential of €90bn by 2030, remanufacturing is set to become an increasingly important aspect of the future manufacturing industry.
Remanufacturing allows companies to strategically position themselves close to their customers whilst delivering economic and environmental savings. ERN helps existing remanufacturers improve their operations and encourages new business to take up remanufacturing.
This website reports the outputs of the European Commission-funded project, European Remanufacturing Network funded under Horizon 2020. Below, you can find links to pages with more information on the project and tools and resources that it generated.
The enduring output of this project is the Conseil Européen de Remanufacture (CER, European Remanufacturing Council). This is a fee-paying consortium of enlightened manufacturers who want to advance the European remanufacturing agenda including addressing the key priorities from the ERN project.
