|Abstract:||Remanufacturing can boost resource efficiency, circularity of raw materials and reduce environmental im- pacts. Material Flow Analysis and Life Cycle Assessment tools are integrated to assess the contribution of remanufacturing in reducing both consumption and impacts of primary resources for passenger cars. Re- sults show that remanufacturing allows keeping within EU about 150,0 0 0 tonnes of materials, which is particularly relevant for Critical Raw Materials, such as rare-earth elements. Also, remanufacturing con- tributes in decreasing environmental impacts of vehicle’s key components, as combustion engines (up to 79% of Global Warming Potential reduction). Further work will address data gaps and it will include current/innovative mobility.|
