While we are yet to witness World Earth Day, Apple is ready to step into doing its bit for the conservation of planet. Adding on to its environmental accomplishments, the tech giant has introduced a robot, Daisy that can disassemble iPhone to recover valuable materials
Daisy has been made by Apple engineers using Liam’s parts and is capable of disassembling nine versions of iPhone and sorting their high-quality components for recycling.
Further, it can take in 200 iPhones per hour sorting them and recovering their components much efficient than any conventional method that destroys valuable components during the process.
Talking about the same, Lisa Jackson, Apple’s Vice President for Environment, Policy and Social Initiatives said,
At Apple, we’re constantly working toward smart solutions to address climate change and conserve our planet’s precious resources.We’re thrilled to introduce Daisy to the world, as she is a perfect epitome of innovation and conservation.
The company has claimed that recycling will become too easy with Daisy at its back, moreover, Apple has also announced a tie-up with nine manufacturing global partners who are actively committed to powering Apple’s production with 100 percent clean energy.
In addition to Daisy, Apple has also come forward with its annual Environment report in which it has targeted three areas:
- Conservation of natural resources
- Adopting use of safe materials and technology to build its product and processes
- Reduction of Apple’s footprint by moving to renewable energy resources driving energy efficiency in its products and services
With Daisy on the roll, Apple is trying to fulfill its commitment towards creating a healthy planet and move a step closer towards its goal of making its product using recycled or renewable materials.
