Cell Phone News – LG to Stop Using Magnesium in All Phones by 2012

LG recently announced that it will no longer use magnesium in its mobile phones. To replace it, LG will instead use Eco-magnesium, which was developed by the Korea Institute of Industrial Technology. Producing Eco-magnesium practically eliminates the sulphur hexafluoride that normally occurs when producing magnesium. This reduction in the sulphur hexafluoride biproduct will reduce greenhouse gas emission by a factor of approximately 24,000 without affecting the quality of the final product. Using Eco-Magnesium in its handsets will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by four kilograms for each LG phone made. LG plans to make the switch to Eco-magnesium by 2012.
