All new Apple batteries will use 100% recycled cobalt by 2025

There’s a long list of things corporations can do to lessen consumer electronics’ environmental impact. Making systems easier to repair is up there, along with encouraging device recycling and updating manufacturing and supply chain processes. Utilizing recycled material in the devices themselves is a big piece of this puzzle, as well — it’s good publicity and better for the environment. A win-win.

Companies like Google and Samsung have leaned into those efforts — the latter providing a great visual in the form of recycled fishing nets. Almost exactly a year ago today (Earth Day is coming up, folks), Apple noted that it was doubling its use of recycled materials in products and pushing to eliminate plastics in packaging by 2025.

This morning, the company announced that same deadline to move to 100% recycled cobalt in its batteries, including the iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and MacBooks. Batteries, the company notes, monopolize ‘a significant majority’ of the cobalt the company uses. Cobalt is a rough one — both with regard to mining practices and the metal’s direct impact on those people who do the mining. Here’s a Guardian story from 2021 — horrific stuff.

In a release issued this morning, Apple notes:

The move follows similar initiatives for key materials including aluminum, tungsten and rare earth metals. It’s also more broadly a piece of Apple’s long-standing push to carbon neutrality by 2030.

‘Our ambition to one day use 100 percent recycled and renewable materials in our products works hand in hand with Apple 2030: our goal to achieve carbon neutral products by 2030,’ says VP Lisa Jackson. ‘We’re working toward both goals with urgency and advancing innovation across our entire industry in the process.’

A big piece of the puzzle is, naturally, recycling cobalt from older, end of life devices. Five years back, the company implemented its Daisy robotic arm, which strips and separates materials from iPhones.

Says Apple:

Another interesting note, in light of Apple’s XR ambitions, is the ‘overhead projector-based augment reality system’ (seen at the top of the post) it’s been shipping to partners, in order to guide human workers through the disassembly process.
