SusTech Talk Sept. 2022: Sustainable Technologies


SusTech is hosting talks on Sustainability leading up to the 2023 conference.

“Sustainable Technologies”

with Ravinder Dahiya, President, IEEE Sensors Council

Date: 19 Sep 2022
Time: 12:00 PM to 01:00 PM (PT)



This talk will discuss the current model for sustainable electronics, and propose better models for the future. Today electronics are omnipresent, and the process follows a top down flow. In the future a bottoms up flow will lead t a more sustainable process. The talk will cover the magnitude of e-waste, the ICT Footprint, Sustainable Technologies, and circular electronics.
