Abstract

The diffusion of ICTs created the issue of a huge quantity of old computers to be discarded (E-waste). Sustainable dismantle is becoming a global enviromental emergency. Trashware movement is spreading worldwide, aiming to profitably reuse discarded computers as an alternative to dismantling them. Trashware is deeply related to the Open Source and Free Software movements. The aim of this piece of research is to combine Trashware to clustering, in order to verify if further optimisations are possible. Experiments were conducted on clusters of old machines and results are hereby presented.
