Apples Bans Potentially Hazardous Chemicals

AppleApple says it will ban two potentially hazardous chemicals during the final assembly of iPhones and iPads, The Associated Press reports.

The move follows pressure from environmental and workers-rights groups that have called on Apple to stop using benzene, a carcinogen, and n-hexane, which has been linked to nerve damage, in the production of iPhones. The company’s new chemical rules are part of Apple’s commitment to protect factory workers and the environment in the production of iPhones.

Lisa Jackson, Apple’s vice president of environmental initiatives and former EPA chief, told The Associated Press that the company is trying to use greener chemistries.
