Design of next generation electronics for a circular economy

Seminar Circular Electronics, 29 September 2023, TU Delft

Electronics uses many of the critical raw materials. Current manufacturing technologies made consumable electronics very accessible but barely recyclable.

Different strategies for improving the circularity of electronic devices are in the scope of the Circular Circuits project, funded by the Dutch NWO Perspectief program under the leadership of Prof. dr. ir. Arnold Tukker managed by M2i.

The Circular Electronics seminar is organised by the valorisation manager of the project Jan-Henk Welink with support of M2i gives you an overview of the possible approaches.

The preliminary program is:

13.00 – 13.30 Walk-in with coffee and tea

13.30 – 13.50 Introduction of the project Circular Circuits and her work packages

13.50 – 14.10 Material flow and improvements hot spots

14.10 – 14.30 Life time extending technology

14.30 – 15.00 Coffee/tea break

15.00 – 15.20 Design of products and services

15.20 – 15.40 Separation and recycling technology
