Driving forces for future electronics
Joint International Congress and Exhibition Electronics Goes Green 2004+; September 6 - 8, 2004, Berlin, Germany. Proceedings
: Fraunhofer-Institut für Zuverlässigkeit und Mikrointegration -IZM-, Berlin
The technical development towards mobile communication, digital edutainment and ubiquitous computing assistance is interlinked with shorter innovation cycles, global production networks, and mass consumption. This development results in a global challenge due to potentially increasing resource consumption and waste electrical and electronic equipment. Future electronic products have to be designed with minimal environmental impact for maximal user benefit. Human needs should be at the center of technology and business development. Technology is a key enabler for sustainable development. However, looking beyond technology is essential for the long-term prospect. The Proceedings of the international Symposium Electronics Goes Green 2004+ covers key topics like: * Implementation of the WEEE/RoHS * Emerging directives like EuP and REACH * Lead-free and Halogen-free technologies * Take-back logistics and Recycling * Refurbishment and ReUse * Greening the global production network andsupply chain * Environmental assessment, data management and labeling * Sustainability Strategies for electronics products, services and business models.
