Meet Our ECOTRON Partner: TNO Holst Centre


Introducing our ECOTRON Partner: TNO Holst Centre

At TNO Holst Centre, we’re dedicated to pioneering research in hybrid printed electronics, with a strong focus on sustainability.

Electronics waste poses a grave threat to our planet, and we believe printed electronics offer a sustainable alternative to traditional PCBs. By spearheading the transition to printed electronics, we aim to address this environmental challenge. Our focus areas include reliability, processing, recycling, and the integration of bio-sourced materials.

Role in the ECOTRON project:

Responsibilities: Coordinating the project, where the key responsibilities include technology development for dismantling and recycling of printed electronics. Also, championing a revolutionary recycling-on-demand approach.

Technologies Used: Leveraging reversible interconnects with novel chemistry, bonding techniques, and recycling methods to recover metal inks. Additionally, implementing printed electronics as an alternative to PCBs in a lighting use case.

Achievements: Milestones include the creation of lighting demonstrators, reversible interconnects, recycled metal inks, and metal collecting systems.

About the ECOTRON Project:

ECOTRON is dedicated to crafting sustainable electronics through innovative technologies, materials, and processes. With a focus on advancing flexible, organic, and printed electronics, the project aims to revolutionize the industry while mitigating environmental impact.

Join us in our mission to create a greener, more sustainable future through the power of electronics innovation. Together, we can make a difference!
