Article Follow the Money: Major players in the lighting industry are lobbying in Brussels for preservation of toxic fluorescent tubes
Seaborough contributes to a better and healthier world by working with leading NGO’s like CLASP on the existing exemption of mercury contained lights.
In CLASP’s new report ‘Clarifications on Europe’s Comments to the RoHS Committee‘ they address Lighting Europe’s comments of 20 May and 9 June relating to the exemption application for fluorescent lighting. This is the third in a series of reports to inform analysis under the EU’s Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive.
CLASP’s report shows the EU can end sales of the three most common types of fluorescent lights next year. Seaborough contributed with its test results on LED retrofit tubes to prove that LED alternatives that are free of toxic mercury and use less energy are widely available. Seaborough’s oneTLed is one of the products available in the market that allows toxic fluorescent tubes to be phased out.
