Description

Just ahead of the World Earth Day, Applehas introduced Daisy, a robot that can disassemble iPhone to recover valuable materials.With Daisy Apple tries to fulfil its commitment to create a healthier planet through innovation — and help the company move a step closer to its goal of making its products using only recycled or renewable materials.

 

The company claims that the disassembly robot Daisy is the most easy and efficient way to reclaim the valuable materials from iPhones. The robot is made using the Liam’s parts and is capable of disassembling nine versions of iPhone and sorting their high-quality components for recycling.

 

Daisy is capable of taking up to 200 iPhones per hour and can easily sort and remove their components, so that the company can recover the useful components.

 

Apart from daisy, the company has also released its annual Environment Report. In the report the company has covered three important areas:

 

1. Reducing Apple’s carbon footprint by using renewable energy sources and driving energy efficiency in its products and facilities.

 

2. Conserving precious resources.

 

3. Pioneering the use of safer materials in its products and processes.

 

Recently, Apple announced that its global facilities are now powered with 100 percent clean energy. The company also announced nine additional manufacturing partners committed to powering all of their Apple production with 100 percent clean energy, bringing the total number of supplier commitments to 23.

 

Talking about the same, “At Apple, we’re constantly working toward smart solutions to address climate change and conserve our planet’s precious resources. “In recognition of Earth Day, we are making it as simple as possible for our customers to recycle devices and do something good for the planet through Apple GiveBack. We’re also thrilled to introduce Daisy to the world, as she represents what’s possible when innovation and conservation meet.” said Lisa Jackson, Apple’s vice president of Environment, Policy and Social Initiatives.
