Are there new environmentally friendly glass materials to make CRT’s?

I see new environmental friendly glass materials coming in the future. Is it possible for companies to make new cathode ray tube monitors with 100% green environment friendly glass materials. How will this work?

Welcome to the PF. :smile:

Unfortunately, there is one big hurdle in the way of making an environmentally friendly CRT glass envelope. Can you say what that is? The clue is in that acronym "CRT"... :wink:

It just won't.
Apart from having some problems regarding the side effect of cathode rays, I would be the first to protest if anybody would try to force me giving up half of my desk to host one (three) of those CRT monsters.

Just imagine how much THIS would weigh (and cost) if created with a CRT.
