Sustainable material design – electronics integrated in plastic can be recycled
When developing and manufacturing innovative products, sustainability plays an increasingly important role. Innovation no longer means just faster, better, cheaper, but also energy-efficient, environmentally friendly, and above all, recyclable. From April 17 to 21, the INM – Leibniz Institute for New Materials will present novel materials and methods at the Hannover Messe that enable electronic components embedded in plastics to be detached from them as needed. Subsequently, electronics and plastic can be recycled separately.
