For example, in the \u0026 nbsp; iphone \u0026 nbsp; xs, iPhone \u0026 nbsp; xs \u0026 nbsp; max \u0026 nbsp; and \u0026 nbsp; \u0026 nbsp; above, there are \u0026 nbsp; Components contain recycled plastic.
Apple’s strategy for plastic use is mainly reflected in the following aspects:
The first thing to pay attention to is to reduce plastic dosage through the efficient use of materials. For example, Apple has redesigned the method of injection molding mold for iPhone \u0026 nbsp; xs \u0026 nbsp; and \u0026 nbsp; iPhone \u0026 nbsp; xr \u0026 nbsp; can produce one -third of the abandoned plastic.
For plastic that must be used, Apple is looking for replacement of renewable or recycling to replace plastic -based plastics.
However, due to the large number of plastics used by Apple and different grades, each plastic is designed to meet specific requirements.
For this reason, Apple is systematically systematically exploration and certification cyclic alternative for each level of plastic exploration and certification. In this way, no matter what kind of plastics are needed, there are cyclic or renewable options.
So far, Apple has found regeneration substitutes for \u0026 nbsp; 24 \u0026 nbsp; plastic of different levels. This allows Apple to use \u0026 nbsp; 38%\u0026 nbsp; regeneration plastics in the \u0026 nbsp; 82 \u0026 nbsp; breeding components released this year. In terms of packaging, Apple is trying to completely eliminate the demand for plastic. In the past three years, the plastic used in Apple’s product packaging has been reduced by nearly half.
Samsung: Environmental protection design process
At the beginning of this year, Samsung Electronics announced that it will use environmental protection and sustainable materials such as regeneration/biological plastics instead , Produce a series of products, including mobile phones, computers, tablets, wearable products and packaging.
Its goal is to use 500,000 tons of recycled plastics by 2030 and collect 7.5 million tons of waste products.
Samsung Electronics has set up a series of green management goals to reduce greenhouse gas, and at the same time, it is committed to minimizing the impact on the environment during the production of the product, thereby reaching the circular economy.
For example, by 2020, 90%of new development products meet ecological standards; collecting waste products globally from 3.8 million tons (from 2009 to 2020); %Wait.
Samsung’s strategy in plastic use is the environmental design process, and the product design time has taken into account the impact of the product on the environment.
Environmental design process is an environmental protection evaluation method used in the product planning stage. From product design to logistics, distribution, and even recycling, Samsung pays attention to every link to thoroughly examine the product impact on the environment.
Through this procedure, Samsung determines the functional characteristics that are consistent with environmental protection measures, such as reducing resources used in manufacturing, reducing unnecessary packaging, efficient points, and efficient points.Solding, recycling after the end of the product life cycle.
LG: reduced waste, recycling, and then use LG promised to recover 95 % of waste from the production base by 2030, and The specific method is to greatly reduce the abandonment of overseas commercial places; at the same time, the landfill rate of the Korean factory waste (mainly the Korean turtle -tail A3 production base).
In the past, all industrial residues generated by the wastewater treatment of Korean turtle A3 production base were sent to the reclaiming area. Now, the turtle -tail A3 venue has reduced industrial remnants of about 100 tons per month.
At the same time, check the conditions involving raw materials recycling processes, analyze related recycling performance and applicability, and explore diversified recycling methods.
The amount of garbage landfill in Turtle A3 decreased from 1,527 tons in 2017 to 94 tons in 2018, and the waste landfill rate decreased from 10 % to 1 %.
In addition, LG promised to collect 4.5 million tons of electronic waste from 2006 to 2030.
LG Electronics will create a resource circulating ecosystem through the management process and product design phase. In the process, consider the resource reuse and recyclable, and get rid of the order of resource mining, production, consumption and abandonment. To linear economy.
Overall, LG electronics are committed to recycling resources and waste generated during the production stage to the greatest extent, and increased waste collection and recycling after use to help the circular economy.
SONY: Lightweight, environmental protection design, resource recycling use Sony implements Sony in the whole life cycle of career activities and products \”Minimize the investment in resources\” and \”reinvide the maximum resource\”.
Investment resources, promote the lightweight of the product, and improve the efficiency of the resources of the cause.
In response to re -resourceization, we must not only design environmental protection, but also cooperate with the recycling operators to promote the re -resource of the post -use products recovered from all over the world.
At the same time, actively procure and resource -based raw materials and components, maximize the use of product resource recycling.
Sony also established its own unique chemical management standards to thoroughly manage the chemicals in raw materials and components worldwide globally. At the same time, prevent or take measures in advance to continuously reduce and replace any potential impact on the environment.
In terms of plastic applications, Sony developed a new type of recycled plastic as early as 2011. Its classic regenerative plastic Sorplas \u0026#8482; Occupy 1%.
The source is mainly the waste discs recovered by the factory and the abandoned optical membrane, which also containsAfter consumption, regeneration plastic such as plastic water bottle.
Sony’s regenerative plastic has always been applied to Sony’s various products, including television, camera and telescope, etc., helping to achieve sustainable development.
