Case Studies

The case studies, based on the results of the ReMake project (2009-2012), illustrate experiences from improving efficiency in European manufacturing companies. 


The ReMake (Recycling and Resource Efficiency driving innovation in European Manufacturing SMEs) project was a public-private partnership for resource efficiency in the manufacturing sector. The project, jointly funded by the European Commission DG Enterprise & Industry, the innovation agencies and the ReMake partners, designed and tested policy instruments and practical tools to support eco-innovation in the manufacturing industry. With the support of REMake experts, companies were able to assess savings potential and discover how resource efficiency and life-cycle awareness can increase their profitability. The case studies below, demonstrate the successful application of eco-innovation in the manufacturing industry across Europe. 

Guidebook on Standards

The Guidebook on eco-innovation standards and regulations has been published under the project REMake. It is dedicated to SMEs that would like to learn more about the profitability of eco-innovation but are not aware of the legislative and normative context and the existing technical and financial support systems.


The database may be filtered using multiple categories: by lifecycle steps (e.g. production, packaging, transport, use, end of life), by topics (e.g. waste, energy, emissions, materials, worker, equipment) by sector or keywords. It aims at supporting the SMEs in their efforts to identify and pin-point the right information amongst the jungle of regulations and standards existing at European and National level.
