The C901 could be an option for mobile recyclers

Sony Ericsson has been praised for its work to improve its manufacturing processes in a way which may interest those recycling mobile phones.

The company was singled out in a new study entitled Greening Consumer Electronics: Moving Away from Bromine and Chlorine, which looked at how firms were reducing levels of harmful by-products.

Put together by ChemSec and Clean Production Action, the research looked at the work of seven firms in the sector, with some of the fruits of Sony Ericsson's various initiatives noted.

Mats Pellback Scharp, head of sustainability at the manufacturer, said the firm was proud to have brought devices like the GreenHeart C901 and Naite mobile phones to the market.

"Building on the established heritage of our parent companies, Sony Ericsson has worked continuously to become an industry leader in the area of removing harmful substances from the core of its phones," he added.

The MH300 headset was announced as part of the C901 and Naite GreenHeart range in June.
