The end of life treatment of second generation mobile phone networks: Strategies to reduce the environmental impact

A life cycle assessment was carried out based on a detailed life cycle inventory for a typical GSM 900 mobile phone network and related End of Life (EOL) treatment infrastructure.

The environmentally preferable EOL treatment alternative was identified on the basis of six previously developed EOL treatment scenarios.
