Last December, Dell announced Concept Luna, a new initiative to create sustainable and easy-to-repair PCs. And while the concept was just that, a concept, today Dell shared more details about the evolution of the project and how you can take a laptop apart in a matter of minutes before recycling the parts.

The initial concept was unique, aiming to build a PC or laptop without glue, fewer solder points, or even screws to make a device that is durable, easy to repair, and even easier to disassemble and recycle as needed. The goal is sustainable devices, materials and recycling.

A big part of the project is collecting individual components of a device rather than just discarding or disposing of old and used electronics. Removing individual parts that still have a useful life and giving them a second or third life will go a long way in the battle against e-waste.

Over the past year, Dell’s Experience Innovation engineering group has worked tirelessly on the project and perfected the modular design of the Concept Luna. Today, Dell confirmed that it has completely eliminated the need for adhesives or cables on the PC, vastly reduced the use of screws, and built an entire “micro-factory” for disassembling Luna.

As a result, Luna is one step closer to reality. Instead of taking over an hour to remove all the glue, screws, and stickers from a device, Luna’s team and micro-factory can complete the job in minutes.

Then, thanks to intelligent telemetry and robotics, the system can diagnose individual system components and their status during the recycling process to ensure nothing goes to waste. If something is reusable, it will be used again. Combine this with efforts in the right to reparation movement, and things look promising.

That said, Dell did not mention consumer repairability or the availability of replacement parts for users. Instead, he focuses on the inner side of things.

When you think of the millions of tech gadgets sold each year, being able to minimize waste and make gadgets more sustainable and modular could have a massive impact on e-waste and raw material production.

Dell says Luna is still “just a concept” right now, but the long-term goal could one day have a big impact.
