Disassembly through composting

The service life of small electrical appliances is getting shorter and shorter. In the recycling process, manual dismantling of these appliances is not worthwhile. Despite sophisticated technological processes, finite raw materials such as precious and special metals are lost. This study investigates the use of compostable materials in small electrical appliances using the example of a hairdryer. What if, at the end of a biodegradation process, only components made of recyclable materials remained that could be reused or collected separately?
