The circular economy focuses on recycling and regenerating aiming to optimise the value of products, components and materials at all times – the cycle is no longer cradle to grave. The future is: cradle to cradle. But are we ready for the circular economy? This session will discuss the progress that is being made, some of the hurdles that may still need to be overcome.
We’ll investigate what initiatives exist in the electronics manufacturing industry and what incentives exist to encourage more companies to embrace a circular economy strategy. Thanks to our panelists: Michael Ford (Aegis) and Graham Shaw (SMS – Smart made Simple). Kindly sponsored by Humiseal, Koh Young, Aegis, Cyberoptics, Mentor Graphics, Anda, Fuji and Lab ONE.
