E-waste management solution: The break-apart laptop

GreenerDesign recently published an article that could provide some insight into how manufacturers and consumers will help divert e-waste from landfills in the future.

Students at Stanford and Aalto University in Finland are currently developing a laptop that owners can easily disassemble at the end of it’s useful life. Pieces can then be put in a bag and mailed to the proper location for e-scrap reuse.

Before you start wondering if people would have time to take apart their computer, the students report, “disassembly can take as few as 45 seconds…you can disassemble this on your couch. In 10 steps. With no tools.” Now that’s innovation.
