The Heap

Unmade in Taiwan


Miniwiz, a Taiwanese company seeking to establish itself as the preeminent e-waste recycler in that country, has announced plans for a facility not only for recycling e-waste but also made of it. The plant, to be constructed near Taipei, will feature ceilings made of plastic from discarded CDs and DVDs, and walls comprised of glass fibers from reclaimed motherboards, among other innovative construction techniques.

Rumor has it that an entire annex of the building will be constructed solely from Zunes and Nickelback CDs.
