China-UK Green Manufacturing and Remanufacturing Summit – March 2018 – China
New ways to extend the life of resource-hungry products were discussed at this China-UK summit, co-organised by the University of Brighton. The event, the first of its kind, aimed at fostering cooperation in remanufacturing between the UK and China, was attended by representatives of the UK’s innovation agency ‘Innovate UK’, the British Embassy in China, the Welsh Government and China’s Ministry for Information and Industry Technology.
It was co-organised by Dr Yan Wang, Senior Lecturer from the University of Brighton who works in the field of sustainable manufacturing and currently is a Visiting Scholar at China’s National Key Laboratory for Remanufacturing.
“Remanufacturing, which is an important element of the circular economy, is growing rapidly globally. The UK is an EU leader in remanufacturing and China is potentially the largest market for remanufactured products and services and play very important roles in supply chain in global remanufacturing. Collaborating with China at all levels presents great potential for the UK manufacturing/remanufacturing community.” Dr Yan Wang.
