This is a bit of an oddball product, Plextor have just officially launched their "PlexEraser PX-OE100E" designed with a single purpose to destroy CDs/DVDs in an 'environmentally friendly' fashion.

The DailyTech have their take on it here.
Plextor today announced its new PlexEraser PX-OE100E CD/DVD destroyer. The new PlexEraser drive delivers a secure environmentally friendly method of destroying CD/DVD discs to security-conscious companies and individuals. The standalone unit operates without the need of a PC and is an alternative to disc shredders that are currently available. Plextor believes the PlexEraser will find its use in finance, government/military, research industries and companies with sensitive data.
