‘Designing out waste’ talk in Parliament today


How to design waste out of manufacturing will form the basis for discussion at an event this afternoon held by the Associate Parliamentary Sustainable Resource Group.


The parliamentary seminar on remanufacturing will introduce waste management issues relating to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive to a wider audience of MPs and Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs stakeholders, according to APSRG organiser Katherine Gillbe.


A panel of senior industry representatives and expert speakers including David Parker, head of remanufacturing at the Centre for Remanufacturing & Reuse; Dr Kieren Mayers, commercial manager at Reverse Logistics Services Geodis UK; and Richard Elsden, director of Government affairs at Caterpillar will discuss the resource issues relating to remanufacturing.


According to the APSRG, remanufacturing is the process of taking end-of-life goods and re-engineering them back to ‘as new’ or better condition.


Designers are invited to attend the event, which takes place at 3pm in the Committee Room 19, House of Commons, London.
