lead-free electronics research



Hi P2tech,

In response to market concerns and emerging legislation in the EU, we have been helping our companies work together to find lead-free methods for electronic component manufacture.  I have just posted this really great overview of performance testing of lead-free options in electronics.  Entitled New England Lead-free Electronics Consortium: Phase III Overview

Take a look if this is useful for your work in the electronics sector.

Adjusted for production, TURA filers have decreased their toxic chemical use by 45% and
are generating 69% less byproducts. During this same eleven years,  core TURA filers reported
an overall 45% increase in production!
