In an attempt to create an environment friendly company, Apple introduced a new disassembly robot which will take recycling process of iPhone to next level. Named, Daisy, the latest robot is designed to retrieve iPhone components at a surprisingly high rate.
This latest recycling robot sounds pretty familiar as few years earlier, the company introduced another similar robot named Liam which was engineered to retrieve components from 1.2 million iPhones for other uses. Daisy however, is little bit more efficient as the robot can retrieve more than 200 iPhones per year which will take the number up to 1.75 million devices.
The company noted in an official press release, “Apple’s newest disassembly robot, Daisy, is the most efficient way to reclaim more of the valuable materials stored in iPhone. Created through years of R&D, Daisy incorporates revolutionary technology based on Apple’s learnings from Liam, its first disassembly robot launched in 2016. Daisy is made from some of Liam’s parts and is capable of disassembling nine versions of iPhone and sorting their high-quality components for recycling. Daisy can take apart up to 200 iPhone devices per hour, removing and sorting components, so that Apple can recover materials that traditional recyclers can’t — and at a higher quality.”
Apart from Daisy, Apple also introduced Apple GiveBack, an environment friendly initiative. With the latest program, Apple will make a donation to Conservation International for every returned device by users. This latest news comes as earlier last week, Apple noted that all facilities of the company across the world now runs on 100 percent renewable energy.
