RIO Tronics R & D for Sustainability
Smart metering manufacturers are a key to monitoring energy and carbon conservation and products’ toxicity reduction. Should they not be leaders in exemplifying this in their own products?
Committed to sustainable practices, RIO Tronics has undertaken research in cooperation with the University of California Davis, and the University of California Irvine, to quantify the toxicity of its products, and substitute its materials for safer and less toxic ones in its products-
The work has resulted in a healthier and less toxic series of products. The results are published in the Wiley publication:
Volume 9, Issue 2, pages 319–328, April 2013
