Life-Cycle Assessment of Desktop Computer Displays: Summary of Results
Abstract: Assessment of the life-cycle environmental impacts of two technologies that can be used for desktop computer displays: the cathode ray tube (CRT) and active-matrix liquid crystal display (LCD). CRTs are found to have greater life-cycle impact than LCDs in 17 of 20 categories. Energy generation and use in the CRT life cycle is the largest contributor in almost all impact categories. LCDs have about 4% of the lead found in CRTs.
