  • 25/02/2011Lead-free soldering guideline (NoNE)

    Lead was one of the earliest heavy metals to be identified as a toxic environmental pollutant in widespread use throughout the world. Its use has been or is being phased out in many applications -- paints and leaded petrol, for example -- but the electrical and electronics (EE) sector has proved a stubborn case, in part because lead is still a key component of tin-lead solders used in equipment and components, notably printed circuit boards (PCBs).
  • 24/02/2011MARIFUNC - Nordic Network for Marine Functional Food

    The role of food as an agent for improving health has initiated the development of new classes of food - functional foods.

This offers new opportunities to the Nordic food industry.
