The annual International Consumer Electronics Show is on tap for this weekend in Las Vegas, and while not all of the 2,700 exhibitors will be showcasing eco-friendly products, energy-efficiency and resources used in manufacturing are a hot topic of discussion.
Among the numerous products that will be on display this weekend:
Motorola’s Moto W233 Renew has a shell made of plastic water bottles that requires 20 percent less energy in manufacturing.
- Energizer’s new automotive line, produced in partnership with Universal Power Group, that ranges from jump starters to tire inflaters so motorists can handle repairs without extra driving.
- Laptops from Hewlett Packard and Toshiba that have increased battery life to an entire workday without requiring a charge.
CES itself has an entire knowledge track dedicated to technology and the environment, including a session on recycling electronics. The show is a preview of what products are nearly ready for public release, so expect to hear more about them later in 2009.
