On Friday 27th January, we attended the launch in Brussels of the Conseil Européen de Remanufacture (European Remanufacturing Council). At this event, the Council announced its plans to represent companies which produce €30 billion of remanufactured products and employ 190,000 people across Europe.

The current rate is 2%. For more information please visit
