Chemical Found In LCD Screens Far Worse Than CO2
Nitrogen trifluoride, or NF3 is a chemical found in LCD panels. It was found by a recent study to have a global climate impact 17,000 times greater than the much maligned carbon dioxide. The chemical stays in the atmosphere for 550 years and there is no known way to remove it. Production on NF3 is predicted to double in 2009 due in part to the digital television switch which will lead to increased LCD consumption.
