September 20, 2021
Carbon Mobile is moving production of the Carbon 1 MK II carbon fiber smartphone to a new site to increase quality and reduce emissions.
The Carbon 1 MK II sustainable smartphone is a clear indication of Carbon Mobile’s commitment to sustainability. Working with commerce & lifecycle service provider, Ingram Micro, the company is further investing in sustainability by reducing emissions while also increasing quality with a move to a redesigned former Motorola production facility in Flensburg, Germany.
The Carbon 1 MK II smartphone is built using is HyRECM Technology, Carbon Mobile’s radio-enabled carbon fiber composite material that eliminates connectivity issues. The phone weighs only 125 grams, is thin, at 6.3 millimeters, and features a 3,000 mAh battery.
According to Firas Khalifeh, founder and CEO of Carbon Mobile, “Working with advanced materials is the necessary first step to closing the loop on E-Waste. The Carbon 1 MK II is built with a unique lightweight monocoque body making it 33 percent lighter than the average smartphone. If all devices were made in this way, the industry could save 100,000 tonnes of the earth’s resources every year.”
