CNH Industrial Reman: Benefits the Environment

Remanufactured parts are good for the long-term livelihood of equipment. CNH Industrial Reman is an example of how CNH Industrial adapts to the economy and supply chain changes.

Save Energy. Save Labor. Save Money. 

  • A remanufactured engine requires 80 percent less energy to build than a new engine.
  • Costs up to 50 percent less than an original engine because the majority of the product is recovered core.

Environmental Benefits of Reman

Most of the cost for the original part lies in the labor and raw materials used to produce them. Recovering used parts in mass quantities and reutilizing them saves money in the remanufacturing process. This process also helps the environment by using less energy and reusing precious natural resources. 

Improving on Recycling

Recycling reduces the amount of waste headed for the landfill and provides the Earth's raw materials with multiple uses. For example, if an engine were to be recycled, its steel could be used to produce another steel item.  Remanufacturing is even better because it doesn't just recycle raw materials; it also "recycles" much of the value added during the manufacturing process of new products. In turn, remanufacturing makes a much more significant economic contribution per unit than recycling because it recaptures the cost of labor and energy added to the basic cost of raw materials.

Save the Environment

Each year, remanufacturing worldwide saves enough raw material to fill 155,000 railroad cars-enough for a train to stretch across 1,100 miles. In addition, remanufactured products kept from the trash longer mean that landfill space is preserved and air pollution is reduced from parts that would have to be re-smelted or otherwise reprocessed.  Remanufacturing saves more than 80 percent of the energy that would have been used to produce a new part, reducing about 28 million tons of carbon dioxide released by ten 500-megawatt, coal-fired electricity plants each year.
