Fostering of the Remanufacturing Industry

The KNCPC fosters the remanufacturing industry, thus enabling the industry to reduce energy consumption, improve resource productivity and create high added

companies; and by performing activities to improve customers’ understanding of the industry.
  • Remanufacturing : The re-commercialization of used products or parts which have been discarded by restoring their functions and capacities through the
    process of collecting, dismantling, cleaning, inspecting, and repairing/ reconditioning, and re-assembling and final testing them.
  • Material Recycling: The return of used products or parts to the production process as raw materials via physical and chemical processes such as collecting,
    dismantling, classifying, crushing, smelting, etc.
  • Reuse : Reuse of used products or parts as used products via minimal work procedures (simple cleaning and repair).
  • Remanufacturing process
    • 1st step: Collection of used products.
    • 2nd step: Complete dismantling of products.
    • 3rd step: Thorough cleaning of dismantled parts.
    • 4th step: Classification based on performance (reusability)
       testing of each part.
    • 5th step: Repairing /or reconditioning to give them a new
       product level of functionality.
    • 6th step: Re-assembly of the product and its final
       performance testing.
