During the last two decades, the number of electrical and electronic equipment has grown exponentially, especially smartphones, tablets and IoT. Such a trend is expected to continue to a similar extent over the next decade. Exchange data, watching videos, follow the news and (besides that) make phone calls, became very usual for billions of people…. And objects!
This leads to a concrete impact on the environment. Digital technology also implies the use of rare non-renewable resources, massive data storage, and various types of pollution, including greenhouse gas emissions of around 2% of global emissions (more than all global air traffic) …
So what is the environmental bill of the crazy number of communications and electronic devices?
Can you use SOCs to decrease the bill?
