Press Release

Conference to put spotlight on remanufacturing’s carbon-cutting potential

The RIC-RIT World Remanufacturing Conference (WRC) returns November 7–9, 2023, in Springfield, Missouri, to show remanufacturing’s potential as a driver of a zero-carbon economy.

The push to find real, profitable strategies for decarbonizing manufacturing is at full throttle—but is the remanufacturing industry ready? WRC 2023 will provide business leaders, innovators, policymakers, and other decision-makers the opportunity to discover how “reman” can support cleaner, more sustainable production. They will learn from thought leaders working at the intersection of remanufacturing, carbon accounting, and climate policy.

Now in its sixth year, WRC remains the only industry event to focus entirely on remanufacturing, an industrial process for returning used or worn parts and products to a like-new condition.
