The A3Ple safety gas demonstrator was awarded Best Publicly Funded Project Demonstrator at the OE-A* competition that took place at the international conference on printed electronic –LOPEC*- in Munich on 04-05 March 2015. This demonstrator was realized in the frame of A3Ple, a SME focused collaborative project funded by the European Community’s 7th Framework Programme under grant agreement n° 262782 (APPLE). It is a four year project that started on June 1st 2011. The CTP coordinates the consortium that includes twelve partners from six European countries. All the partners on www.a3ple.eu
In the awarded gas sensor demonstrator, resistors, sensors, displays, and all conductive elements are fully printed on paper. It is an “on/off” device that gives information on presence of dangerous gas. Thanks to the traditionally industrial graphic printing methods used, the manufacturing cost of the future products is very competitive. The recyclability and biodegradability of the products are also demonstrated. Results arising from the project can be transferred to other functionalities in order to create more printed electronic paper products.
