LG pledges to switch to cleaner eco-magnesium in all mobile devices
LG mobile phones will become a little more eco-friendly by 2012, the deadline that the company has set for itself to replace conventional magnesium with a new type of clean magnesium alloy. The quality of the phones will not be affected; however greenhouse gas emissions during the manufacturing process will be reduced by a factor 24,000. That’s a significant amount. While the company sees it as a way to save carbon credits, I hope that actual concern for the environment can rein and the new material will be shared (sold) to other manufacturers.
