Wipro Infotech, leading provider of IT and business transformation services, today unveiled its new 'eco-friendly' desktop, manufactured with materials free of harmful chemicals like polyvinyl chloride and brominated flame retardants.

Based on the Intel Core 2 Duo processor, Wipro Greenware range of desktops are free from carcinogenic materials such as PVC and BFRs, Chief Executive of Wipro Infrastructure Engineering Ecoeye, Social and Community Initiatives Anurag Behar said.

By removing toxins, recycling of electronic products would be safer, he said.

"Wipro considers launch of PVC and BFR free products a major breakthrough in clean production and recycling policy. A very difficult process with no alternative solution, Wipro worked with 37 overseas suppliers for over two years to come out with the completely toxin free product," he said.

Sr Vice-President & Business Head, India & ME business, Wipro Anand Sankaran said, "Wipro is the No. 2 greenbrand in India after Samsung and Nokia. Of our annual desktop production of two lakh units, greenware would be 15-20 per cent."
