Periodic Table Shows Element Scarcity

We all or almost all have one, but what elements is a smartphone made of? This periodic table by the European Chemical Society shows around 30 elements and its scarcity. Some 10 million smartphones are being discarded or replaced every month in the European Union and the raw materials are rarely recycled. EuChemS hopes that this thought-provoking periodic table will lead to reflection and ultimately, action.

Create your own Periodic Table

The design company Art. Lebedev Studio has released a Periodic Table which can be adapted for your needs. You can compare values and parameters, you can include the flags of each country which discovered the elements and many more. There are more than 100 000 permutations (including background and cell colors) available to create a table that is the right one for you.

High resolution tables can be created, downloaded, and shared for free at https://periodic.artlebedev.ru
