Environmental Issues in PCB Production

Insight into the situation in Europe with regard to the electronics market. New European circular legislation will come into force in 2024 at the earliest, which is mainly aimed at new producers: sustainability must be included in the production process from the design phase, with the idea that we will no longer use more raw materials, but less. Products in the EU, must therefore last longer, be easier to maintain and repair, and be made more energy efficient. The presentation will discuss developments surrounding this subject and the position of electronics companies in Europe and beyond. 

In light of the previous topic, the implications for the production of PCBs are discussed, where are the production companies in their preparations to comply with the new legislation and what topics have they encountered along the way?
