Sustainable Alternative Materials to Plastics in Electronics

March 28, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm PDT

Plastic production has outgrown most other manmade materials, with more than 99% of them being petroleum-based and nonbiodegradable. Conventional plastics are difficult to recycle and persist in the environment for hundreds of years, causing great environmental concerns. In addition, the dependence on crude oil makes the plastics industry unsustainable and renders the plastics market vulnerable to oil price volatility. Therefore, there is a growing interest in developing sustainable alternatives to conventional plastics. Particularly, the electronics industry is making a switch to greener alternatives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, lower product environmental footprints, and build positive marketing image. Here, we present a perspective on the advancement of bioplastic sustainable alternatives and the challenges and advantages associated with their potential use in electronics.
