HOW LED LIGHTING REDUCES ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT
TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES IN LIGHTING REPRESENT ONE OF THE MAIN OPPORTUNITIES TO REDUCE THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSOCIATED WITH ENERGY CONSUMPTION.
In recent years, LED lighting has not only come to improve the way we illuminate spaces, but has also generated a great economic and environmental change, allowing us to improve costs, increase its applications and approach a more responsible use of natural resources.
LED lamps do not contain polluting materials such as mercury, lead or tungsten, or other types of toxic materials, which are present in other types of lamps. In addition, its energy consumption is much lower, reaching an 80% reduction in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, one of the main gases involved in climate change.
High power LED lamps reach approximately 100 lumens per Watt and consume ten times less than a common incandescent lamp and 40% less than a compact fluorescent lamp.
