Remanufacturing is the ultimate form of recycling.
Recycling is a process that returns materials to their raw state and makes new items from the recycled materials. Remanufacturing is the process of fixing damaged items and returning them to like-new condition, which saves energy and materials.

A study done at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology found that approximately 85% of the energy expended in the manufacture of the original product was preserved in the remanufactured product.
Energy savings by remanufacturing world-wide in a year equals the electricity generated by 5 nuclear power plants, or 10,744,000 barrels of crude oil, which corresponds to a fleet of 233 oil tankers.

Raw materials saved by remanufacturing worldwide in a year would fill 155,000 railroad cars, which would form a train 1,100 miles long. Because products that are remanufactured are reused, landfill space is preserved and air pollution is reduced.

In addition, Diesel Exchange has taken countless measure to become more eco-friendly. The lights and ventilation used throughout the facility are designed to minimize energy consumption. Resources are reclaimed throughout the facility, such as the heat generated in the dyno process.
