By 2010, all Nokia phones will be brominated & chlorinated free

3

Based on information from the Nokia website, Nokia will remove all brominated and chlorinated compounds as well as antimony trioxide from all phones by 2010.  In Nov 2008, Nokia introduced its first device, the Nokia 7100 Supernova, which was free of brominated compounds.  

 

At present, the typical Nokia mobile phone has the following material breakdown:

  • Plastics: 45%
  • Metals: 35%
  • Glass and ceramics: 10%
  • Battery electrodes: 9%
  • Precious metals: 0.11%
  • Other: 0.9%

Nokia also reports that all new Nokia phones developed since 2006 are PVC free and RoHS compliant (Restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment).
