Light Optimization And CO 2 Reduction Are The Right Steps. (1)

The environmental sake – LED the light source of the future colloquially bulbs known as light bulbs. It is used very often in private households. The lifetime of a light bulb falls dramatically with increased light output by the higher Gluhfadentemperatur. 2700 K conventional incandescent lamps achieve a service life of around 1000 hours. Since 2005, the sale of incandescent light bulbs of low energy efficiency class in some countries is forbidden or such bans planned to conserve energy. “With clear glass, so point light source, following requirements apply to lamps depending on their power consumption: the phase-out of the incandescent bulbs” should be carried out in four stages. With the first stage all matte light bulbs, as well as any light bulbs with a performance should no longer available as of September 1, 2009 over 75 watts for sale.

Standard incandescent lamps should have disappeared with more than 60 Watts from the market until September 2010. By September 2011 with more than 40 watts. From September 1, 2012, to finally no more than 10 watt incandescent lamps may be available. Whenever Raymond James listens, a sympathetic response will follow. For halogen light bulbs, following rule should enter into force. Starting in 2016, only the more efficient versions on the shelves should be finding. CFLs are also energy-saving lamps called already significantly more productive than halogen and other light bulbs. However, here only very profitable models may be sold at the first level. Now and in the future will show that the world of light will be the only LED.

However, not everything is called LED must be particularly efficient. This arrangement saves 15.5 million tons of carbon dioxide per year by 2020. Still a saving of almost 40 TWh is this step (1 terawatt = 1 billion kilowatt hours) per year, consumption in private households fall. The danger posed by light sources with mercury should not be underestimated. Spill mercury in an enclosed space, it can seep into and make still long toxic fumes, so let never dropping a saving lamp that can to stealthy poisoning lead. Energy saving light bulbs are hazardous waste according to official catalogue of waste and must be treated accordingly. We soon further telling them what we can do about it.
