Apple Announces iPhone SE to Be Made From Carbon-Free Aluminum

The world’s first carbon-free aluminum direct casting process

The manufacturing process required for smartphones is not easy on Earth, and studies have shown that it takes as much energy to make a phone as it takes to run it for ten years. Apple is trying to change that reality to some extent.

Apple has just announced that the next iPhone SE models will be made of carbon-free aluminum, according to the company’s official blog post. In fact, thanks to Canadian manufacturing giant Elysis, the iPhone SE will benefit from the world’s first carbon-free aluminum casting process directly outside the lab. The hydro-based smelting process produces oxygen instead of greenhouse gases, reducing the climate impact of the manufacturing process.

“This is the first time aluminum has been produced at this commercial purity with zero greenhouse gas emissions and on an industrial scale,” Elysis CEO Vincent Christ said in a blog post.

There are some caveats here, though, as Apple hasn’t released any specific information on how iPhone SE products will benefit from this new process. Another potential issue is the design of the phone itself, as the SE uses only aluminum for the frame, with a glass-dominated back.

Apple has set a goal of creating a fully carbon-neutral product line by 2030. According to the company, Apple’s aluminum-related carbon emissions have fallen by nearly 70 percent since 2015.

“We’re excited to partner with Apple on this breakthrough, which has the potential to drive lasting changes in the way aluminum is produced,” added Christ.

Apple Announces iPhone SE to Be Made From Carbon-Free Aluminum

World’s first direct carbon-free aluminum smelting process

Smartphones require a manufacturing process that isn’t exactly easy on the planet, with studies indicating the energy used to build one phone is equal to the energy required to operate it for a decade. Apple is trying to ever-so-slightly change this reality.

Apple has just announced that forthcoming iPhone SE models will be made from carbon-free aluminum, as reported in an official company blog post. In fact, the iPhone SE will benefit from the world’s first direct carbon-free aluminum smelting process outside of a laboratory, thanks to Canadian manufacturing giant Elysis. The hydropower-based smelting process outputs oxygen instead of greenhouse gases, reducing the climate impact of the manufacturing process.

“This is the first time aluminum has been produced at this commercial purity, without any greenhouse gas emission, and at industrial scale,” said Vincent Christ, Elysis’s CEO in the blog post.

There are some caveats here, however, as Apple has not divulged any specific information as to how many iPhone SE products would benefit from this new process. Another potential issue is the design of the phone itself, as the SE only uses aluminum for the frame, with the back dominated by glass. 

Apple has set a goal to create an entirely carbon-neutral product line by 2030. According to the company, aluminum-linked carbon emissions at Apple have dropped almost 70 percent since 2015.

“We are excited to be working alongside Apple on this advancement, which has the potential to make lasting changes in how aluminum is produced,” added Christ.
