Episode notes

With rapidly increasing sales of electronic items, e-waste has become one of the fastest-growing waste streams. In the UK alone, half a billion small electronic items will end up in landfill each year. 

One UK business is innovating to address the huge challenge of e-waste. Jiva Materials has created the world’s first fully recyclable printed circuit board laminate. Currently, printed circuit boards are responsible for the biggest share of the overall carbon footprint of an electronic device.

In this episode, Turquoise International’s Ian Thomas spoke to Jiva Materials’ CEO Dr Jonathan Swanston.
