Definition - What does Clean Computing mean?
Clean computing, a subset of green computing, is a concept that refers to the environmentally responsible use, manufacture and disposal of computers, computer peripherals, equipment and other technology products. While green computing refers to the environmental impact of computing as a whole, clean computing is specifically focused on the production of environmental waste.
Techopedia explains Clean Computing
When computer manufacturers practice clean computing, this means that they don't produce harmful waste in their disposal of IT equipment and that they strive to use non-hazardous materials for computer chips, packaging and other components. Clean computing may also involve computing efficiency and a reduction in energy use.
