Apple announced that they will source low-energy aluminum from Elysis to lower the overall carbon emission of the manufacturing process.
There have been many issues with consumer electronics products, especially when it comes to how fast people unnecessarily upgrade their phones and tablets. What most buyers don’t realize is that these devices have a huge carbon footprint, even when they are very small.
Now, Apple has taken the first step in addressing one of the most energy-intense materials in its devices. By sourcing aluminum from Elysis, it aims to make a significant dent in the overall CO2 emissions.
Apple press release says,
Apple has always been extremely picky when it comes to the quality of aluminum, but if they have now accepted their first batch, then this should be a significantly positive move for one of the world’s largest companies.
Hopefully, this will mean a large-scale production boost for Elysis and a partnership that will extend to other manufacturers.
