Energy Dept to Construct its REMADE Institute in New York; Ernest Moniz Comments

The Energy Department will construct the headquarters of its new Reducing Embodied-energy and Decreasing Emissions Institute in Rochester, New York.

REMADE Institute will utilize $140 million worth of federal funding and private-cost share commitments from more than 100 partners to help reduce the cost of technologies used to reuse, recycle and remanufacture materials including electronic waste, fibers, metals and polymers, the agency said Wednesday.

REMADE Institute, the fifth DoE-led institute under the Manufacturing USA network, will look to achieve a 50 percent improvement on overall energy efficiency by 2027 through new manufacturing techniques and small business opportunities that can support the country’s economic competitiveness and create jobs for American workers.

Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz said the institute will help foster innovation and technologies designed to mitigate harmful emissions and open jobs for the country’s economy.
