About ReMade in Queensland

ReMIQ – an initiative of the $1.1 billion Recycling and Jobs Fund – provides grant funding to support Queensland’s small-to-medium sized manufacturing and recycling businesses use recycled waste streams into existing or new products.

ReMIQ is part of the Queensland Government's Waste Management and Resource Recovery Strategy and the Queensland Resource Recovery Industries 10-Year Roadmap and Action Plan, as well as supporting the Queensland Energy and Jobs Plan.

The program aligns with the Queensland Advanced Manufacturing 10-Year Roadmap and Action Plan. This encourages Queensland manufacturing businesses to use advanced manufacturing technology and techniques.

What is remanufacturing?

Remanufacturing is the use of recovered, recycled and reprocessed materials in manufacturing. It offers opportunities to reuse materials which would otherwise end up in landfill.

By using and reusing waste, remanufacturing offers both environmental and business benefits. These include reduced material and energy costs.

Consumers and businesses are increasingly looking to buy sustainably sourced materials products, giving remanufacturing businesses a competitive edge.
