Circular design for electronics

On-demand webinar available now.

How to design sustainable and circular electronics to fit the new EU requirements? What is required to build a techno-economically feasible route for sustainable recycling of the materials at the end of their lifetime? How to ensure lean manufacturing with minimum waste and emissions?  

The European and global environmental agendas drive the electronics industry to rethink its environmental impact. The target is to design products that are more durable, repairable and recyclable, and even based on renewable raw materials. 

In this webinar you will learn about the new developments of the EU Ecodesign Directive, circular design, resource efficient manufacturing, electronics e-cycling, and bio-based materials for electronics.
