Travelling professionals, students, and executives have a new lightweight business laptop to consider: the HP Elite Dragonfly. But the specs and stylish looks of HP’s new laptop aren’t the only things to be excited about. For the manufacturing of the Elite Dragonfly, HP used post-consumer electronics, including ocean-bound plastics.
82% of the laptop was made with recycled materials such as PET, ABS, metal magnesium, and PC/ABS, including parts such as the speaker box, speaker enclosure, battery frame, and chassis.
For the production of the new laptop, HP collaborated with several reclaimers that sort and clean recovered plastics from electronics and appliances.
The HP Elite Dragonfly marks an important milestone in the production of sustainable electronics and proves that modern laptops can be eco-friendly without compromising on specs.
About a decade ago, this kind of innovation in electronics manufacturing wouldn’t have been possible but in the past couple of years, there has been great progress in cleaning and separating post-consumer plastics.
Thanks to these innovations, tech companies will likely launch more sustainable electronics on the market and take actionable steps to solve the global plastic problem.
