Dr Wang - Principal Lecturer in the University of Brighton’s School of Computing, Engineering and Mathematics - is one of the UK’s leading researchers in remanufacturing. This moves away from resource-guzzling 'single use' processes to find effective ways to re-use components multiple times in rebuilding products to 'as new' working status.
As a way to reduce raw material consumption, cut energy consumption and slash carbon emissions, remanufacturing is a growing trend globally driving efforts to achieve a more circular and environmentally sustainable economic model. Because most remanufacturing takes place in the country where products are used, it also provides jobs in communities across the UK.
