Intel is to strengthen its environmental effort by removing lead from all its future processors, beginning with its entire family of 45 nanometer (nm) processors.

The Intel 45nm Hi-k family includes the next-generation Intel Core 2 Duo, Core 2 Quad and Xeon processors. Intel will begin 45nm Hi-k production in the second half of this year.

“Intel is taking an aggressive stance toward environmental sustainability, from the elimination of lead and a focus on greater energy efficiency of our products, to fewer air emissions and more water and materials recycling,” said Nasser Grayeli, Intel vice president and director of assembly test technology development.

In 2008, the company will also move its 65nm chipset products to 100% lead-free technology.
