PCC, PIC, and our suppliers
Using recycled content in our products is no small task. It presents significant challenges due to the unique structural, performance, and cosmetic requirements associated with these applications.
To overcome such challenges, our engineers work closely with our PCC suppliers to develop and qualify new grades of plastic resins previously unavailable to the IT industry. In addition to seeking out environmental benefits wherever possible, we ensure that all our products meet our high exacting standards.
Using re-engineered plastics not only saves the natural resources and energy that would have gone into manufacturing new plastics, but also diverts an equal amount of PCC and PIC from landfills.
To learn more about Lenovo's use of recycled content materials, please read this white paper.
Please note: Lenovo calculates and reports net recycled plastics content based only on the actual weight of the post-consumer or post-industrial recycled content in the plastic resin blend, not the overall weight of the blend. That means that for every 100 lbs of a plastic resin blend containing 30% post-consumer content, the net usage Lenovo reports is only 30 lbs of post-consumer content, not the overall weight of the material.
