What is clean computing?
Clean Computing, a subset of Green Computing, is a concept that relates to the environmentally sound use, manufacture, and disposal of computers, computer peripherals, devices, and other technology products. While 'Green Computing' refers to the environmental impact of computers as a whole, 'Clean Computing' specifically focuses on the production of environmental waste.
If computer manufacturers practice clean computing, it means that when they dispose of IT equipment they do not produce harmful waste and that they make an effort to use non-hazardous materials in computer chips, packaging, and other components. Clean computing can also include computational efficiency and a reduction in energy consumption.
