Some incandescent bulbs will be more sold from September 1, 2009, the consumer will have to make a choice among other types of products. Hervé Lefebvre, head of Department at Ademe (environment and energy control agency), presented at LEXPRESS.FR
What will – be replaced incandescent bulbs?
September 1st, 2009, all “opaque” incandescent lamps will be withdrawn from the market. The only solution to replace these lamps are the lamps low consumption. ‘Transparent’ incandescent lamps, a planning is set to remove between 2009 and 2013. Initially, most high power lamps will be removed from the market.
The goal is to remove, by 2013, categorized lamps from D to G. In 2016, the C class will be removed in turn. The consumer can then make his choice from two product lines: low consumption lamps or halogen lamps.
What are the benefits of both types of lamp?
These lamps have better energy performance.
For example, a traditional incandescent lamp emits 12 lumens per watt. The lumene correspond to the amount of light emitted by an electric source. A C category halogen lamp emits, on the other hand, 20 lumens per watt, and a lamp low consumption class has produced 55 lumen per watt. A greater amount of light is so issued for the same energy consumption, which is beneficial for the environment.
The other advantage is coming to life: the “low power” and the halogens last longer than incandescent bulbs. These illuminate for 1000 hours, a halogen lamp works between 2000 and 3000 hours, finally a lamp low consumption has a 6000 to 10 000 hours.
What about the drawbacks?
Halogen lamps do not have many drawbacks, apart from their cost, which is higher than that of incandescent lamps. Moreover, they heat up. The user therefore risk of burns.
Lamps low consumption contain, mercury and are part of the hazardous waste that should be recycled. The collection and recycling of this type of bulbs is provided by the Récylum organization that is committed to make available large areas of selling at least 3000 furniture collections. In addition, their light output is not 100% from the ignition. On the other hand, they do not burn.
