Fujitsu To Recycle Used CDs, DVDs Into Laptops

Posted on August 17, 2012

With the rise of downloadable music and movies, the popularity of CDs and DVDs has been dwindling pretty quick. And what is even worse than a bunch of discs still unsold in record store shelves? Your used shiny plastic discs collecting dust in your abode as you listen music through your fancy iPod and watch movies by streaming on Netflix.

Fujitsu plans to bring those outdated media formats to good use. The company adapts a recycling program that uses CDs and DVDs into new notebooks, starting with the Lifebook P772/E enterprise laptop, with more models coming soon. Fujitsu aims for the new program to reduce the use of new plastic by as much as 10 tons annually and slash carbon dioxide emission by around 15 percent.

Fujitsu also assures the public that its new recycling system follows strict quality control measures to avoid contaminants from being mixed into the recycled plastic.

“The Fujitsu Group is proud to promote the recycling of end-of-life ICT products in Japan and around the world to help create a recycling-minded society,” the company wrote in a press statement.
