ITU's Standardization Section (ITU-T
) has made specific recommendations
for creating a:
(1) universal charger for laptops and other portable devices (L.1000
(2) universal power adapter (UPA) designed to serve the vast majority of ICT devices (L.10001
(3) standardized methodology for manufacturers to report the quantity of rare metals contained in their ICT devices (L.1100
If adopted by industry, these recommendations could equate to a reduction of over 300,000 tonnes
of e-waste annually!
