ReCiPSS automotive sector starts wholesaler selection
After 1.5 years of preparation, the physical part of the automotive demonstrator within ReCiPSS has officially started. In March 2021 first cores from German wholesaler Lorch arrived in the CoremanNet selection station in Göttingen. The cores from all of Lorch’s suppliers will be identified, evaluated and sorted now.
In addition to that, four selected Lorch outlets have been technically equipped to support the physical core handling via CoremanNet system and ReCiPSS platform directly in their premises.
For the first time the ReCiPSS IT platform will be used to manage core return options from workshops via wholesalers to the remanufacturer in a “real-life”-environment.
Within that demonstration the wholesaler will gain more transparency over his full reman assortment and can take informed decisions in core handling with regards to financial implications.
C-ECO is participating in the EU funded ReCiPSS project as leader of the automotive demonstrator. With their service brand CoremanNet, the physical handling of all cores is provided.
The ReCiPSS project aims to explore success factors for circular value chains at large scale. Two industrial demonstrators of the Automotive and White Goods Industries are involved in the project and they will demonstrate the implementation of circular manufacturing systems where the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) is not in full control of the entire product throughout all stages.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 776577-2.
