Biolap: Pathway to next generation of laptop

Abstract

With increase in demand for computers, iPods and mobile phones there is surge of electronic gadgets around the world leading to production of huge quantity of waste term as E-Waste. To reduce the dumping and recovery of precious metals by harmful means from e-waste in developing countries we have develop an innovative solution. Manufacturing of laptops and computers using bioplastic which is partially biodegradable material and have life span of four to five years. By varying the composition of different bioplastic their thermal insulation, structural strength and conductivity can be improved. And would make them perfect to replace acrylonitrile butadiene styrene –common plastic being used in manufacturing of different kind of laptops. Also the segregation of these bioplastic into its constituent’s materials is much simpler and easier. This is done by segregating of electronic components made from bioplastic at home or industry level. Further, these bioplastic can be used as a feed for small community based pyrolitic units which will act as a source of syngas and bio-oil. The syngas produced can be used as fuel for cooking and also for supplying back to generators. The biochar left in chamber when mixed with organic fertilizers can be act as source of manure to the soil. As a result with production of zero toxic constituents these bioplastics can meet the ever increasing demands of laptops in developing countries like India.
