Sustain-a-Print – Finding greener alternatives and combining recyclability and biodegradation into electronic designs. 

The EU project “Sustain-a-Print” started in October 2022. LOMARTOV attended the Kick-off Meeting with the rest of the project team in Copenhagen, Denmark, on the 6-7 October 2022 hosted by the Danish Technological Institute (DTI). The consortium consists of 11 partners distributed across six European countries (Denmark, Greece, Spain, the United Kingdom, Germany, and Sweden).

Printed electronics (PE) is one of the fastest-growing waste streams in the European Union (EU), and it is estimated that less than 40% of electronic waste is recycled within the EU. There is a need to explore new options for electronics that are designed for reuse, repair, and high-quality recycling.

The EU-funded Sustain-a-Print project seeks to address electronic waste with low-material-usage printed electronics. Researchers intend to incorporate sustainability considerations into each stage of a product’s life cycle, including the selection of materials, their origin, assembly, processing method, and end-of-life, contributing in this way to a circular economy in the EU.
