Apple Shares New Video on How its iPhone Parts are Recycled into Supply Chain

Apple has released a new video sharing how L.I.A.M. (Liberate. iPhone. Auto-disassembly. Machine) can help the company recycle its iPhone into specific parts, allowing these pieces to re-enter the supply chain, which means Apple no longer needs to extract new material from Earth.

Lisa Jackson, Apple’s lead on Environment work, and our recycling robot Liam will make you believe. Lisa and her team explain it all, while Liam disassembles your iPhone 6 so those parts can find new life.

On top of the video featuring Lisa Jackson, Apple’s lead on Environment, other Apple executives also partake in the 50-second animated clip:

Apple first shared a closer look at LIAM last March. The robot consists of 29 helper robots and can disassemble an iPhone in seconds, tearing apart 350 units per hour.
