In the laptop cover, Dell uses 71 percent recycled materials consisting of tree-based bioplastics from the paper-making industry, as well as reclaimed carbon and recycled post-consumer plastics. The laptop cover is the second heaviest part of a laptop, and the use of these recycled and renewable materials helps Dell make a bigger sustainable impact by helping to reduce the carbon, water and energy footprint of the product.
At the base of the laptop Dell uses reclaimed carbon fiber and the latest bio-based rubber feet made from castor seed oil, thereby reducing dependence on petroleum-based materials. In addition, the Dell Latitude 5000 series uses 28 percent of plastic waste that ends up in the ocean as material for fan housing. Finally, the packaging of this laptop is made from 100 percent recycled or renewable materials.
Use recycled materials in other series
In addition to the Latitude 5000 series, plastic materials from marine debris are also used to make fan housings in the Dell Precision 3000 series mobile workstations, and to manufacture fans and fan housings in Dell OptiPlex Micro desktops and Precision workstations. Dell has also expanded the use of this plastic in its EcoLoop Pro series backpacks, sleeves and bags, which use 100 percent marine plastic as the main exterior fabric layer.
Meanwhile, bio-based rubber derived from castor beans can also be found on the lower bumpers of the Latitude 7430 and 7530, as well as the Precision 3000 series mobile workstation. For packaging made from recycled materials, in addition to all Latitude laptops, Dell also uses it for Precision mobile workstations. , and the latest XPS series.
