A firm in Dublin, Ireland, has manufactured the world’s first biodegradable computer – dubbed the iameco – from bio-degradable wood panels made out of waste products in the lumber and pulp industry.

During a visit to the company by Ireland’s Minister for Science and Innovation, Jimmy Devins, the inventors of iameco – MicroPro Computers Ltd – said they could implant the seeds of native-tree species into the wood panels. “Our business is built around green technologies and using them to produce healthier, more energy-efficient and cheaper computers that have less impact on the environment,” said Paul Maher, chief of MicroPro. One advantage of iameco is that when the components are buried in landfill, the wood gets wet, breaks down and new plants begin to grow from old computers. In addition to the iameco computer, which uses three times lesser energy than conventional computers, the biodegradable wood can also be used to manufacture the computer monitor casing, keyboard and mouse.
