View source for Sustainable Technology
In Wikipedia, Sustainable Technology redirects to Sustainable Design. The definition of Sustainable Technology is then found buried half-way down to the bottom of this long article. The definition is as follows: :Sustainable technologies are technologies which use less energy, fewer limited resources, do not deplete natural resources, do not directly or indirectly pollute the environment, and can be reused or recycled at the end of their useful life. It can be seen that Sustainable Technology here means environmentally friendly technology. The term is thus generally synonymous with [[Environmental Technology]] and [[Alternative Technology]]. However, Sustainable Technology would appear to be currently the preferred term for this topic, judging from the size and pertinence of the corresponding Wikipedia articles. The Wikipedia article also observes that Sustainable Technology may have high cost or maintenance requirements that make it unsuitable as an Appropriate Technology, meaning technology suitable to the needs of people in developing countries. Moreover, a technology that is most appropriate to a developing context may not be the most sustainable one (for example simpler technologies may in some cases be more highly polluting). ==See also== [[Environmental Technology]] ==Links== *http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sustainable_technology [[Category:Appropriate Technology]]
