Samsung bring its Environment Strategy through their enhanced SolarCell Remote

Intending to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050, Samsung Electronics brought its environmental plan to light in 2022. In celebration of its third anniversary, Samsung Newsroom brings the perspectives of JongKeun Lee of H/W Platform Lab and HyunJoo Kim of Mecha Solution Lab and explores the development of environmentally conscious products. By 2030, Samsung plans to implement 50% of recycled materials in the plastic components they use, and Samsung thinks about bringing only recycled materials in all of its plastic components by 2050.

Samsung Electronics created the SolarCell Remote, which is the first rechargeable remote control in the market, made with the goal of lessening the negative effects that are disposing of batteries left in this environment. Additionally, it accompanies a solar panel that can be charged by either artificial light or sunshine.

JongKeun Lee from H/W Platform:”The level of carbon emissions from the SolarCell Remote, from production to disposal, is roughly one-third of that of the manufacturing of disposable batteries. By eliminating the need for disposable batteries, not only are fewer resources consumed but carbon emissions are lowered by manufacturing fewer batteries over time.”

HyunJoo Kim from Mecha Solution Lab: “With growing concerns about ocean waste, we looked carefully into many solutions. We chose to use recycled plastics from discarded fishing nets for 20% of brackets of the 2023 SolarCell Remote. Going forward, we aim to foster the use of these resources and utilise recycled plastics more aggressively.”

HyunJoo Kim: “This year, we started using recycled plastics from discarded fishing nets. While they are costly and difficult to process, the end result is a higher quality of materials which contribute to our mission of everyday sustainability. The process is quite extensive, from sorting out the waste to cleaning, removing toxic substances and improving material properties.”

The noteworthy quality that the SolarCell Remote holds is that it utilizes only 10% of the total power that other remote variants use. Polymers that are present in the SolarCell Remote have been recycled up to the extent of 24%. This brings out the low power consumption function. SolarCell Remote was mentioned in Time Magazine as “The Best Inventions of 2022,” for the way it was designed in account of environmental sustainability.
