Achieving Zero Waste through Ubiquitous Compute

Zero Waste Computing

Zero Waste Computing introduces extreme savings in the computing ecosystem with 3 steps:

Step 1 - Reduce

During acquisition and operation ensures extreme Reduction in resource consumption.

Refuse any excess purchases and wasteful practices.

Offer idle resources or excess capacity to others.

Step 2 - Reuse

At the retirement of resources, ensures extreme Reuse through repurposing and repairing.

Do NOT recycle if a resource can be reused.

Step 3 - Recycle

When a resource cannot be Reused, extract useful components from the largest to the smallest.

For example:

  1. Reuse complete hard disks BEFORE of melting them to extract metal.
  2. Use organic waste in compost BEFORE burning them as fuel
