Environmental issues in electronics manufacturing: a review

Environmental issues in electronics manufacturing: a review This is a review paper, covering the various concerns that the electronics manufacturing industries are currently addressing, except for semiconductor manufacturing. These include waste water treatment, the need to reduce energy requirements for both the finished product and the manufacturing processes, the use of lead in solder and cathode ray tubes, bromine-based fire retardants, ozone depletion, including the problems of the small and medium industry in developing nations and new ozone-depleting solvents, climate change due to fluorocarbons and the problems from volatile organic compounds. A section treats the impact of industrial pollution on public health.

Abstract

This is a review paper, covering the various concerns that the electronics manufacturing industries are currently addressing, except for semiconductor manufacturing. These include waste water treatment, the need to reduce energy requirements for both the finished product and the manufacturing processes, the use of lead in solder and cathode ray tubes, bromine-based fire retardants, ozone depletion, including the problems of the small and medium industry in developing nations and new ozone-depleting solvents, climate change due to fluorocarbons and the problems from volatile organic compounds. A section treats the impact of industrial pollution on public health. The paper is written in a very critical style, evoking problems due to inappropriate rule making.
