Letters of Intent due on June 3 for $50 million grant
The REMADE Institute is seeking proposals for a $50 million investment fund. Letters of Intent are due on Thursday, June 3 and details are available on the website at Request for Proposals. The final proposals are due July 15.
Established by the United States Department of Energy, REMADE was started in 2017 as a public-private partnership.
There are applications for three types of projects: traditional research and development; transformational research and development; and education and workforce development. In particular, REMADE is seeking efforts that increase the reuse, remanufacturing, recovery and recycling of polymers/plastics, metals, fibers and electronic waste. The initiatives are for technologies that will sustain the manufacturing sector of the United States and the transition to a circular economy, where companies make-use-reuse-remanufacture and recycle.
Projects that tackle issues across the materials supply chain or remanufacture components from significant sectors of the economy are of particular importance. This includes motor vehicle equipment, medical equipment, aerospace and consumer products. Also of interest are programs that create models for improving materials recycling, develop design tools that enable greater remanufacturing and recovery and implement materials with low recycling.
