Hi Tim- We cannot speak for the entire medical device, only our wire & cable.  Frankly, I don't know what the procedures are for disposal of Medical Devices.  I do know that Electronic Equipment typically falls under the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive, and all of our EcoGen products (EcoWire, EcoWire Plus, EcoCable, and EcoFlex) are WEEE compliant.

The article stated that the MPPE insulation is recyclable.  With the use as a medical device, would the recyclability of the item be considered as a selling point for the device?  Wouldn't medical devices be considered bio-hazzard after use?

I'm curious if MPPE is mostly limited to medical devices. If so, why?

Excellent article.  It's interesting how "building block" products play a role in continuing to make medical devices smaller and lighter.  The environmental aspects of MPPE is a good bonus and increasingly becoming a decision point for consumers.

More often than not, with the purchase of a sports car comes the sacrifice of any sort of utility. In other words, you can forget about a large trunk, extra seats for the kids, and more importantly driving in snowy (or inclement) weather. But what if there was a vehicle that offered the best of both worlds; great handling and practicality?
As additive manufacturing (including 3D printing) becomes increasingly popular among businesses as a quick and easy solution to creating and evaluating prototypes and end-use products, the debate about whether to outsource production or to purchase equipment for in-house use is at the forefront of industry discussions.
With increasing terrorist threats overseas, organizations are thinking about how best to defend themselves here and abroad. Engineering can play a role, especially when it comes to putting a barrier between yourself and the bad guys.
Time to market is everything, but at the same time, you can’t sacrifice quality for speed. That’s where additive manufacturing comes into play.
In the last few years, use of CFD in building design has increased manifolds. Computational fluid dynamics is effective in analyzing the flow and thermal properties of air within spaces. It can be used in buildings to find the best measures for comfortable temperature at low energy use.
