“Remanufacturing and Product Sustainability,” will be presented by Dr. Nabil Nasr at the Opening Session of the 2008 International Big R Show, which will take place on Sunday, November 2nd. The presentation will focus on the momentum building around environmental sustainability and the positive implications for the remanufacturing industry.
The universal tenets of material reuse and multiple product lifecycles are second nature to remanufacturers, but new to many organizations. Today, progressive companies are changing the way they do business, market their products, and service their customers to enact more sustainable production and consumption. Dr. Nasr will discuss how companies have embraced this transformation and how it may continue to evolve in the near future to benefit the remanufacturing industry.
Dr. Nasr will also cover topics such as the direct and indirect impact of remanufacturing on greenhouse gas emissions, the opportunities created by increased government awareness and focus on remanufacturing, the current and future impact of material and energy shortages on remanufacturing and reuse, and the opportunities for new business in clean technologies based on changes in the marketplace.
APRA President Bill Gager stated, “We are pleased that Dr. Nabil Nasr, Director of the National Center for Remanufacturing and Resource Recovery at Rochester Institute of Technology, will present his take on the importance of remanufacturers in the drive for world sustainability. Dr. Nasr’s reputation as an international presenter has earned him an interactive role with major organizations that are shaping both policy and international activity.”
