An Eco Friendly Approach for Sustainable Computing

Devendra Singh Kushwaha [2] | Dr. Vikash Kumar Singh [2]

Abstract: With the impact of climate change, comes the anticipated impact of green computing, hence the urgent need to reduce the carbon emissions produced by the information technology industry. Global carbon emissions from information and communications technologies are estimated as being roughly equal to those of the airline industry. Why? A massive amount of electricity is needed to operate computers, search engines, and peripheral equipment. The manufacture of a computer chip can generate up to 4, 500 times it's own weight in waste. Then there's the pressure of consumer demand. People want the latest, the smartest and the fastest technology. We do not yet know how far consumer attitudes will change the anticipated impact of green computing.
