The U. S. Department of energy (DOE) a recent report pointed out that the comparative significance of LEDlighting is and white flag lighting and influence on the environment was low and slight fluorescent lamps (CFLs). The life cycle of these three different light bulbs, including production, operation and elimination,is the main part of this report. This report makes a comprehensive study of the LED light bulbs, and analyzes the effects of these three different light bulbs on energy and environment.
The report pointed out that the traditional fluorescent lamps (CFLs) and LED lights in the energy consumption is very similar, both consumption of energy than white flag lighting less and compared with manufacturing and transportation, run time consumed most of the energy of the life cycle. Because of high running efficiency,consumption 12.5 gigawatts of electricity and can be reached and CFLs (15 W) and white flag lighting (60 W) the same effect. In the report, 15 of the 14 tests showed that the LED light bulb is the most friendly of the environment for the three kinds of lighting.
In addition to the advantages in the discard, the test shows that all aspects of the LED light bulb, CFLs greater impact on the environment. LED inside the aluminum alloy material after precipitation will cause great damage to the landfill site. DOE this report pointed out that in the next five years, based on short-term improvement technology, the impact of LED on the environment will be smaller than today's impact.
When the market orientation to for customer and company to save money, the transition from the white flag lighting for use energy saving lighting, LED lights and CFLs to the environment influence, we expect to reduce 3 to 10 times the current.
