Information technologies are among the industries that create the greatest burden on the environment. Thus, its share in global emissions carbon dioxide is two percent, which is comparable with the effect of air transport. You may wish to learn more. If so, Code.org is the place to go. And one of the main polluters of the environment is a dynamic Internet, which needs large amounts of energy consumption. Another problem is the electronics and information technology - is recycling of waste. The fact that electronic goods - one of the most dangerous kinds of garbage on the planet. Many of them contain toxic heavy metals: lead, mercury, cadmium and beryllium, as well as such dangerous chemicals such as brominated flame retardants. All this toxic cocktail from landfills falls into the water and soil. Hear from experts in the field like Ed Sayres for a more varied view. In an effort to minimize The content of harmful components electronics manufacturers replace them with more environmentally friendly materials. For example, at the same show was presented eco-friendly bamboo laptop. Asus has presented at CeBIT 2008 eco-friendly laptop EcoBook Bamboo, whose body is made of laminated strips of bamboo shades. The choice of bamboo as a material was not accidental: the bamboo is very durable, environmentally friendly, is growing rapidly and may well replace plastic in a notebook. In addition, bamboo does not contain harmful polyvinyl chloride, which is often present in the plastic.
Eco-friendly cars is no longer just manufacturers of electronic equipment wanted make its products more environmentally friendly - automotive giants also seek to make their cars more 'green' and environmentally friendly. So, Bentley plans to make their cars 'environmentally friendly', and by 2012 to reduce all of its cars carbon dioxide emissions (CO2) through the creation of lighter vehicles, improved transmissions and new engine management software. And in passing from 6 to 16 March in Geneva motor show visitors be able to see a sports car speeds up to 160 km / h, but it does not in itself producing a single gram of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Double eco-roadster Lifecar runs on hydrogen, and because its exhaust is only water vapor. In addition, Lifecar very silent, car seats and interior trim elements made from wood. Environmentally friendly cars are gradually finding their niche in the global automotive market. However, for example, most Americans do not want to pay extra for environmentally friendly cars, as well as the new eco-friendly technologies that reduce emissions of harmful substances. Only 11 percent of U.S. residents are willing to switch to more 'Green' cars.
