This alternative plastic material displaces common server plastics such as PC+ABS, with a material that has a lower lifecycle environmental impact. Our efforts have resulted in several variations of a natural-fiber filled polypropylene (NFFPP) plastic that is currently being used in multiple products in our data centers across the world.
Facebook wants to present our experience to the community as a starting point to build upon so that this material and other alternative materials may be further developed to reduce the impact of our equipment on the earth. We will discuss the research that has gone into our lifecycle assessment (LCA) of the material. We will:
- explain our approach to sustainable design and incorporating LCA into our material selection decisions
- show how we are using the material in our data center equipment

- explain some of the special considerations required in designing with the material

- give an overview of the required approach to mold setup and processing
