Beazley Designs of the Year Product
Printed circuit boards feature in ever more of our products and they contribute to one of the world’s fastest growing waste streams.
Jiva’s Soluboard is a non-toxic, fully recyclable alternative to the epoxy resin and fibreglass of conventional circuit boards. Soluboard dissolves in hot water, leaving a residue of compostable natural fibres, water that can go down a domestic drain, and electronic components for recycling.
If fully implemented on a global scale, the material could reduce the carbon footprint of the printed circuit board industry by 60 per cent.
