  1. 1. Green By: Daeja Rainey Computing
  2. 2. what is green computing? <ul><li>&quot;the study and practice of designing, manufacturing, using, and disposing of computers, servers, and associated subsystems—such as monitors, printers, storage devices, and networking and communications systems—efficiently and effectively with minimal or no impact on the environment. Green IT also strives to achieve economic viability and improved system performance and use, while abiding by our social and ethical responsibilities. Thus, green IT includes the dimensions of environmental sustainability, the economics of energy efficiency, and the total cost of ownership, which includes the cost of disposal and recycling. It is the study and practice of using computing resources efficiently.&quot; </li></ul>Or to be simply put… Green computing is the environmentally responsible use of computers and related resources.
  3. 3. goal <ul><li>To sustain computing to reduce the use of hazardous materials </li></ul><ul><li>To maximize energy efficiency for the duration of the product </li></ul><ul><li>To promote recyclability or biodegradability of non-operational products and factory waste </li></ul><ul><li>… similar to green chemistry. </li></ul>
  4. 4. telecommuting <ul><li>Telecommuting is working from a different location using computers, telephones, etc rather than commuting by car or other mode of transportation to and from a work site. </li></ul><ul><li>Benefits the environment in many ways, from preserving the environment to conserving energy. </li></ul><ul><li>One way to cut back on business usage of non-renewable resources is by allowing their employees to work from home. </li></ul><ul><li>Teleconferencing technologies are often applied in the green computing plan. </li></ul>
  5. 5. advantages <ul><li>increased worker satisfaction </li></ul><ul><li>reduction of greenhouse gas release in terms of traveling </li></ul><ul><li>increased profit limitations </li></ul><ul><li>Savings in average annual energy consumption </li></ul>(resulting from lower overhead costs for office space, heat, lighting, etc .)
  6. 6. Green Products <ul><li>Sony developed a battery that generates electricity from carbohydrates (sugar). </li></ul><ul><li>Test batteries showed the ability to produce 50 milliwatts. </li></ul><ul><li>It is a passive-type bio battery, in which reactive substances such as glucose and oxygen are absorbed into electrodes through a process of natural diffusion. </li></ul><ul><li>By combining 4 battery units it is able to operate a typical MP3 player or cell phone. </li></ul>Sugar Powered Batteries
  7. 7. Computer recycling <ul><li>This is done by finding another use for the older system </li></ul><ul><li>Donation </li></ul><ul><li>Recycling the parts that can be reused and/or disposed of properly </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>-------------------------- </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Recycling not only whole parts, but computer parts as well </li></ul><ul><li>The amount of electronic waste that leaks out into our landfills is reduced by using computer recycling facilities,. </li></ul>
  8. 8. GO GREEN !
