EPEAT mobile phone category targets halogens
BACK TO NEWS
The Green Electronics Council / US EPA programme EPEAT (Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool) has launched a new product category from mobile phones, which already includes devices from Apple, LG and Samsung.
The criteria include points ($9.2.3) for low halogen content of the telephone device itself and also for its wires, cables and external power supply, defined as <900 ppm for both bromine and chlorine and <1500 for the total of both.
