Abstract

ECOtronics ecosystem consists of a public
research project and parallel company projects cooperating with the research
project. The main goal of ECOtronics
consortium is to support renewal of Finnish electronics and optics industry, to
increase export, and to support development of sustainable electronics and
optics throughout their lifecycles.
Sustainability is targeted in both
manufacturing and disposal by 1) moving towards recyclable and compostable
materials, and 2) developing manufacturing flow towards more material efficient
processes. Research project part of ECOtronics focuses on material development
(substrates, inks, assembly materials) and evaluation, on component and process
development (printing, hot embossing, overmoulding, assembly, conductor
patterning), and on life-cycle
assessment in order to quantify the environmental impact of the developed
solutions.
