Quote:

Inside a nondescript warehouse on the outskirts of Austin, Texas, Apple’s Daisy robot breaks apart iPhones so that 14 minerals, including lithium, can be extracted and recycled.”

If Apple can do it, and the article expresses the notion that they intend to share the technology, why not everybody? Reuse and recycle rather than extract. Just think what government investment could do worldwide to reduce the demand on extractions – environmental and human impact seems to be worth every dollar spent!
