We Protect the World for Future Generations by inspiring Sustainable electronics
The depletion of finite resources and the output of emissions associated with manufacturing processes is a fundamental concern when we are in a great era of technological advancement. Technology enriches our lives from travel, to keeping connected, and to advance life-saving medical treatment.
The issue is very clear. If we continue to develop technology at the rate we are able to, and continue with the linear new-for-old way of life, then our future generations will suffer. Our children and grandchildren will not benefit from advancing technology because they cannot have what they cannot make. We have revolved around this current cycle of upgrading to the latest version for far too long and it is not sustainable for the planet or our children.
To see fundamental change we must not only see improvements in the materials we use, but we need a paradigm shift in the process to manufacture, and crucially, implement an industry ecosystem that delivers end-of-life reusability and environmentally safe disposal.
We cannot and must not forget this.
Together, we can raise the benchmark for sustainable electronics and make a lasting impact. We can change the outcomes for our children and our planet.
ReUSE® is a suite of materials, manufacturing process, and proprietary design techniques to deliver printed circuit board assemblies that can be fully unzipped at end-of-life (EOL), or for repair.
ReCYCLE™ is the unzipping mechanism for ReUSE® PCBAs. A combination of proprietary processes permanently changes the chemistry allowing printed circuit board assemblies to be returned to their constituent parts. The process is ultra-low energy and brings big value to EOL electronics across the supply chain with the ability to repair or reuse the components and materials.
