MINGJIE Resources, a Chinese recycling and remanufacturing company looking to expand its operations, has enlisted the help of German scientists from Bayreuth University and Fraunhofer engineers to develop expertise in the remanufacturing field, reports the Centre for Remanufacturing and Reuse (CRR).
As part of its five-year plan, China is reportedly seeking to expand its remanufacturing industry, with MINGJIE Group committing to the country’s environmental protection business through increased recycling, developing “innovative remanufacturing processes” and by starting a new remanufacturing business, learning from the knowledge of Bayreuth University scientists.
Bayreuth’s Fraunhofer Project Group Process Innovation has offered its support in helping MINGJIE Resources to develop and implement remanufacturing processes, plan factory layouts and train MINGJIE engineers to carry out the remanufacturing processes by adopting a “seven-point plan”, as part of a project commissioned by MINGJIE Resources that will see the launch of a new remanufacturing business.
MINGJIE Group is “specially fostered” by the Chinese government, with its current work including dismantling and recycling e-waste and remanufacturing used motor vehicle parts, as well as designing and manufacturing environmental protection equipment. It also liaises with academics and research institutes to perform R&D in order to further develop environmental protection equipment, aiming to set up a “learning and research integrated demonstration base”.
