Fujitsu Ltd, Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd and Toray Industries Inc. have entered into a joint development of large-size notebook PC plastic housing made of plant-based plastic with low environmental burden. The latest environmentally-friendly plastic is used in Fujitsu's 2005 spring model FMV-BIBLO NB80K notebook PC.

On the environmental front, the new plastic consists of roughly 50 percent natural products (including plant-based materials), reducing the use of petroleum resources. When used to manufacture a notebook PC, CO2 emissions over the product's entire lifecycle are reduced by roughly 15 percent, thereby further reducing the impact on the environment.

The companies plan to expand on various applications for this plastic, thereby further contributing to a reduction in the environmental burden as well as lower consumption of petroleum resources.
