SID Exhibitors to Turn Green29 Apr, 2009 By: Chris Tribbey
Several exhibitors at Display Week conference, held May 31 through June 5 in San Antonio, will showcase their green products.
“As April, or Earth Month, comes to a close, it’s a good time to reflect on the relationship of the electronic display industry with the environment,” said Dr. Paul Drzaic, president of the Society for Information Display (SID), which is sponsoring the conference. “It’s reassuring to know that many companies within the electronic display industry have made significant strides to manufacture more environmentally friendly display technologies and components, enabling greener consumer electronic devices.”
Research firm Display Search says that 20% of flat panel displays had green features in 2008, a number the firm predicts will jump to 70% by 2012.
Among the companies showing off green technologies during the conference are 3M, Corning, DELO, Fujitsu Components America, LG Display, Microsemi, N-trig, and Qualcomm.
