Printed circuit board and printed circuit assembly technologies are predominantly based around thermoset resin boards and copper conductors. There are currently no circular (cradle-to-grave) strategies available for these technologies, which means recycling is restricted to the shredding and subsequent high temperature reclamation of only the precious metals. This equates to less than 5% recyclability.

In2tec is at the forefront of the drive towards sustainable electronic assemblies. We’ve invested more than 10 years in developing circuit designs, constructions, assembly processes and materials to deliver printed circuit assemblies that are up to 95% recyclable.

Our highly innovative approach (which we developed in partnership with GEM and the National Physics Laboratory) is to use an additive conductive print and component placement process in conjunction with specialist adhesives and substrates to provide an unzippable product. Your product can then be broken down into its constituent parts (substrates, conductors and components) through the use of simple catalysts.

We call this patented process ReUse.

Not only are the products themselves extremely sustainable – the recycling processes significantly reduce the volume of heavy metals deposited in the waste stream.
