Remanufacture refers to a standardized industrial process that takes place within industrial or factory settings, in which cores (product or module which has been sold, worn or it is no longer functional) are restored to same-as-new, or better condition and performance. The remanufacturing process is in line with specific technical specifications, including engineering, quality, and testing standards, and typically yields fully warranted products. Firms that provide remanufacturing services to restore used goods to original working condition are considered producers of remanufactured goods. 

This process enables ‘as-new’ products at significantly lower environmental impact and lower cost to the producer, and potentially the customer.

It implies a product improvement where the full structure of a multi-component product is disassembled, checked, cleaned and when necessary replaced or repaired in an industrial process.
