Hands-on guidebook to circular design for electronics makers
“The key to solving the problem of material waste is to consider the end of product life in the initial design phase to facilitate recycling. This guide helps incorporate circular thinking at the early stages for designers, developers and those in the value chain, who can use it as a material selection method that is the first of its kind in the EEA industry.”
“Material selection, in particular, is the foundation for circular design to optimize resource efficiency. Researching resource efficiency solutions is the core mission of REnato lab. Through the partnership with Covestro, we have completed the first design guide on material selection for the EEA industry. The book is intended to provide examples and help for the industry and serve as an easy-to-read guide for the general public.”
