According to Legros, Apples’ metallurgy team has discovered a new technique that uses the excess aluminum from the production process to create an alloy that can be used to deliver ” the same great characteristics we expect in all our products.”

Apple says the recaptured aluminum shavings are re-engineered down to the atomic level.

“We use aluminum because it has incredible strength, durability, and sheer beauty,” Legros said. “To achieve that we’ve had to rely on mining high purity ore. That is, until today.”

The sustainable alloy will also be used in new Mac mini and iPad Pro that Apple announced on Tuesday.
