Before reselling or reusing bits and pieces of silicon, as is the common practice,
they often required cleansing with toxic chemicals. Instead of an acid bath,
IBM engineers have developed a way to remove the imprinted circuitry with water
and abrasive pads -- like those green pads you use to wash the dishes. This
saves money, doesn't damage the silicon chip as much and doesn't generate any
toxic waste. Besides reducing the environmental impact, IBM expects to save
as much as $1.5 million a year.
Saving the environment and saving a pile of money -- sounds good to me. What
are some of the energy-saving measure you've put into place in your organization?
