As consumers are quickly getting rid of their electronic devices and replacing them with new ones, our landfills are filling up with used electronic devices. Lead in PCBs poses a threat to the environment and hence is a cause for concern from the legislative side. Therefore, most organizations are moving away from this hazardous element by opting for lead-free PCB’s.
There are many reasons to opt for lead-free PCBs including the following:
As consumers are using more and more electronic products, it is important to pay heed to this undesirable substance. Saving our environment and the people using these products should be the first point of concern for any electronic PCB manufacturer.
When it comes to the use of lead in electronic products, it is important to recycle the used lead as well as find alternatives to this material. Manufacturers of both PCB’s and electronic products should be concerned about the lead used in their products. Petroleum exemplifies the positive effects of banning lead. When lead in petroleum was banned, the level of lead in bloodstreams decreased. By not using lead in PCB’s, one can expect a healthier environment within and outside us.
