Samsung Electronics has decided to increase the use of recycled parts in smartphone repairs as part of its environmental efforts.
The company is considering implementing a manufacturer-certified remanufactured parts program for mobile device repairs in the first half of this year. The company aims to reduce the burden on consumers and the negative impact on the environment through the use of recycled materials.
If this program is applied, the cost of repairing a damaged display will be halved. Samsung Electronics plans to increase consumer confidence by ensuring the quality and performance of remanufactured parts at a level that matches new parts.
Samsung Electronics has been promoting the use of recycled materials since the announcement of Galaxy Project for the Earth in August 2021. Recycled plastic materials from used fishing nets have found their way into select Galaxy S22 and Galaxy Book 2 Pro.
