Apple is a company very aware of the environment, has already achieved that most of its assemblers use 100% of their renewable energy and, even, we have seen how the aluminum of their latest Mac is manufactured with 100% recycled aluminum.
Now Apple takes another step again and has announced a collaboration with a company that will supply aluminum manufactured with a carbon-free process. He Aluminum is used in a very large number of devices So it is one of the most used metals by Apple and the rest of the industry, which means that the less contaminate its manufacturing the better for everyone.
Aluminum without carbon footprint for Apple devices
In May 2018, Apple announced that it had started a collaboration with two of the world's largest aluminum producers, Alcoa and Rio Tinto. From this collaboration was born a new carbon free aluminum smelting process. The two companies formed a joint venture called Elysis and have been working to further develop this already patented technology.
