Life Cycle Assessment of Surface Mount Technology equipment (MyLCA)
Modern electronics industry is changing rapidly. Today’s electronics include complex circuit boards, highly advanced and miniaturized components using novel materials and dispensing media. The manufacturing of the products, in mixed production volumes and without compromising on quality, productivity and cost, is a key challenge in the industry. To address this challenge, Mycronic AB has developed automation machines for most aspects of the production process. Mycronic’s Surface Mount Technology (SMT) machines locate, load, mount, and trace these advanced components. With the emergence of stricter environmental regulations and increased awareness about sustainability, Mycronic is interested in understanding the environmental impacts of its products.
Carbon footprint of the Swedish ICT sector mapped out
Researchers at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, TeliaSonera and Ericsson have published a unique study which maps out the climate impact of the Swedish Information and Communication Technology (ICT) sector. Despite a rapid growth in the use of computers and mobile phones in Sweden, emissions per user are low.
