The American technology company, Apple, has updated its iPhone recycling robot which it launched in 2016.
Key parts of Liam, the former robot, have been reused to create Daisy – Apple’s new artificial intelligence (AI) machine.
From 100,000 models of the iPhone 6, the previous robot could recover 1,900kg of aluminium, 800kg of copper, 0.3kg of gold, 55kg of tin, 550kg of cobalt, and 24kg of rare earth elements, as well as some conflict minerals, such as Tungsten and Tantalum.
Daisy is capable of recycling the same amount of material from old Apple devices, but is more time-efficient – the new machine can disassemble up to 200 of Apple’s old devices in an hour.
