Manufacturing accounts for about 25% of the energy consumption in the United States. To help reduce the energy consumption and emissions, the US Department of Energy (DOE) has supported “The REMADE Institute”, a public–private partnership launched in 2017. The objective of REMADE is to increase manufacturing energy efficiency and reduce embodied energy in materials (metals, polymers, electronic waste, and fibers). This talk provides an overview of REMADE’s five nodes and the objective of its Manufacturing Materials Optimization (MMO) node.
