Subjects: IT to Production, Industry 4.0 | Electronic Manufacturing Services (EMS) | Services
We first covered the topic at Productronica in 2017 and today it's even more relevant than ever before - 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. The subject is gaining traction so we’ve decided to keep it on the agenda. 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.
