Linear manufacturing methods offer few incentives to make products more sustainable. The EU research infrastructure project ReMade@ARI, which deals with innovative materials for key components in various areas such as electronics, packaging or textiles, aims to change this. The goal? Develop new materials with high recyclability and competitive functionalities.
Arevo, a company known for producing environmentally friendly solutions for improved plant establishment and growth, has performed its first experiment at MAX IV, focusing on developing a new line of biostimulant products that ensures beneficial long-term effects for both plants and soils.
MAX IV strives to provide ease of information access and accessibility to the general public and our users. Aside from the fresh new look and accessibility functionalities, the new MAX IV website is similar to the previous one in many ways. The new website is being optimized continuously and is still subject to errors during this period.
Science news from MAX IV
According to the European Union’s Circular Economy Action Plan, industry can determine up to 80 % of a product’s subsequent environmental impact at the design phase. However, the linear manufacturing pattern offers few incentives to make products more sustainable. The research infrastructure project ReMade@ARI, which deals with innovative materials for key components in various areas such as electronics, packaging or textiles, aims to change this: The goal is to develop new materials with high recyclability and at the same time competitive functionalities. To this end, the institutions involved want to harness the potential of more than 50 analytical research infrastructures throughout Europe. MAX IV is a partner of this consortium.
