Wipro PCs will now be safer to recycle

More than two and half years after it launched PCs that comply with the European Union’s Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) norms, Wipro – which also sells personal computers as part of its India and West Asia IT business – has launched desktops that are completely free of hazardous chemicals like polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and brominated flame retardants (BFRs).

The company, which annually produces around 200,000 PCs, says that 15-20 percent of units will be free of PVC and BFRs initially, a proportion that will be gradually increased in a phased manner.
