Coming of the Green Computers —

Coming of the Green Computers — "Driven primarily by two European Union directives, the U.S. computer industry is in a state of flux that may place ecological considerations on par with profit, speed and bandwidth in the development of new equipment.
In February, the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) and the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directives, went into force. Basically, these two directives require computer makers to implement product lifecycle management programs (including free take-back programs) and the elimination of certain hazardous substances like lead, by 2008 from production lines."
