IGEL thin clients 54% more eco-friendly than PCs across the product lifecycle

GEL thin clients 54% more eco-friendly than PCs across the product

Experts forecast the EU could slash global warming CO2 gas emissions by
more than 5.3m tonnes over the next five years by switching from PCs to
thin clients

Reading, UK - May 20, 2008 - New research into the environmental impact
of thin clients and PCs today revealed that IGEL Technology thin clients
were 54% more eco-friendly than PCs. And if the 8.2m business PCs
forecast to be sold in the European Union in 2008 were replaced with
thin clients, global warming CO2 emissions would be cut by 5.3m tonnes
over the next five years.

The research, undertaken by the renowned Fraunhofer Institute in
Germany, compared the environmental impact of a PC and thin clients from
IGEL technology taking into account each lifecycle phase from
production, through usage and finally recycling. The research builds
upon analysis last year that looked at the ecological costs of simply
running thin clients and PCs.

The latest study demonstrated if a desktop PC is replaced by a thin
client and terminal server, the emissions of the workstation are reduced
by more than 54% across the lifecycle of the products. With the addition
of an LCD monitor this saving is reduced to 44%.
