Paper-Based Electronics aims for using cellulose fibres or organic-based substrates rather than mineral-based, oil-based or synthesis plastics to conceive and develop electronic parts and products.
Results are equivalent, appart from durability, as pure organic materials are quickly biodegradable while plastics are not.
Refined organic-based materials are made of locally renewable resources and they can be recycled if not buired or burnt with considerably less impact than non-biodegradable or non bio-compatible materials.
Their quality can be improved and controlled with a small amount of various chemical additives so as to increase
A thin external recyclable plastic cover is then only necessary to conceive a more durable and well protected product while the whole remains separable and recyclable in the recycling bin.
