We have the tools right now to create electronic products using a circular economy model:
1. Start by validating the supply chain on a blockchain:
a. Reduce/eliminate counterfeits
b. Prevent use of conflict minerals
c. Create sustainable products by protecting societies and the environment throughout the supply chain.
2. Use RFID in the manufacturing process to improve quality and efficiencies and reduce cost.
3. With the fast uptake in use of RFID for enterprise IT asset management (inventory efficiency, loss prevention), outfit enterprise IT equipment with RFID as a differentiator in addition to meeting the growing demand for sustainable IT products.
4. Offer end of life services by teaming with a responsible e-recycler who can maximize recovery by accessing product and materials info from the RFID tag and also have final recovery of all hazardous shipments validated on a blockchain.
YOU HAVE JUST CREATED AND MANAGED A FULLY SUSTAINABLE ELECTRONIC PRODUCT.
