Apple bolsters recycling efforts with new robot

Apple Inc. is ramping up its recycling efforts by using a robot to recover and reuse minerals used in iPhones, Reuters reported Jan. 10.

The robot, called Daisy, disassembles iPhones in a way that 14 minerals, including lithium, can be extracted and recycled.

Daisy, which can break apart about 200 iPhones per hour, uses a four-step process to remove an iPhone's battery, screws and modules. Following this process, the components are then sent to recyclers to extract and refine minerals.

The robot is expected to help the company become a "closed-loop" manufacturer by reducing its reliance on the mining industry.

Lisa Jackson, vice president of the company's environment, policy and social initiatives, in September 2019 disclosed the company's plans to use recycled rare earth elements in its iPhones.
