Later this year, Dell will increase the amount of recycled materials that it uses to make its products. Before the end of 2015, the company will begin using excess carbon fiber and other scrap materials in a few Alienware and Latitude devices. The effort with expand across those two lines in 2016 as the Dell says its plan to use the recycled carbon fiber is "an industry first." The company is teaming up with the supplier SABIC on the initiative, and it says estimates show the duo can keep 820,000 pounds of carbon fiber from hitting landfills. The computer maker began using recycled plastics for enclosures back in 2014, re-using 4.2 million pounds since that time in a number of displays and its OptiPlex desktops.
