JIva Materials

Jiva Materials is developing a new environmentally friendly composite board.

Jiva Materials is developing a water soluble, fully biodegradable non-hazardous flax based board, the Soluboard, to replace the fibreglass that is currently used as the substrate in Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs).

This allows for safer recycling of PCBs. Jiva’s patent-pending Soluboard delaminates when immersed in warm water, allowing PCB components to be recovered safely leaving compostable flax and solution that can be disposed of using standard domestic waste water systems.

Jiva Founder Jack Herring began working on the project whilst studying for his Masters in Design Products at the Royal College of Art.

The company has already raised venture capital investment through InnovationRCA 1 fund.
