Circular economy pushes carbon-neutral laptops across Europe

Promoting a circular economy, UK-based company Circular Computing claims to be the world’s first computer re-manufacturer, that is, refurbishing enterprise-grade discarded laptops into brand new products ready for a second life.

Over 160 million new laptops are made every year and 160,000 disposed of daily in the EU alone. This results in tons of e-waste, the largest growing waste stream, and contributes significantly to carbon emissions and climate change. A circular economy approach directly addresses this issue – over 70% of discarded laptops could be reused.

This is what Circular Computing does, taking thousands of ex-lease computers from large corporations every month. These go through a rigorous 5-hour re-manufacturing process during which they are dismantled, cleaned, repaired, upgraded and refinished in a state of the art, purpose-built re-manufacturing facility. The company has invested over €5 million in a purpose-built computer re-manufacturing facility, which it expects can extend the life of laptops by another 3 to 4 years.

The latest addition to its expanding network of partners across Europe, Denmark’s leading IT business Elitecom ApS will bring Circular Computing’s range of carbon neutral enterprise-grade laptops to the Danish market. Elitecom has now taken it’s first shipment of these laptops and is in the process of building a dealer network of dedicated Circular Computing partners.

For the first time, IT procurement professionals, business managers and schools in Denmark will get great value for money enterprise-grade laptops, knowing that they are also the world’s most sustainable, ethically produced and eco-friendly computers currently available.
