The new report of US Department of Energy(DOE) points out that LED lighting is significant in that incandescent bulb compared to the lower impact on the environment and the slight super-fluorescent lamps(CFLs). LED manufacturing and utility"in this report compare the life cycle of these three different bulbs including production, operation and eliminated. This report is a comprehensive study and analysis of three different bulb products: assembly, transportation and elimination on the energy and the environment. This is also the first open discussion of the report of all LED production process to support the Department of Energy to protect the public air and water, and to improve the competitiveness of US clean energy, and to assist the family and line number to save the costs of energy bills.
This is the second report of the Department of Energy assessment compared with the traditional light bulbs. The life cycle cost of environmental resources.
This report follows the previous report, which is published in February 2012" "Review of the Life cycle Energy Consumption of Incandescent, Compact Fluorescent and LED Lamps" conclusions, and compare three different lighting sources wide-ranging implications on the environment.
The report points that the traditional fluorescent lamps(CFLs) and all LED lights are very similar in terms of energy consumption, both energy consumption are less than incandescent bulbs, and consumed compared to manufacturing and transportation, running most of the life cycle-energy. Because of the high efficiency of the running, consuming 12.5 watts of electricity and can be achieved and CFLs (15 watts) and incandescent bulbs (60 watts), the efficacy. 15 test report 14 shows the LED bulbs are three lighting among the most environmentally friendly lamps.
In addition to the dominant disposal, all aspects of testing existed. Compared to LED bulbs, the impact on CFLs is larger than environment. The landfill would be after the LED inside the aluminum alloy material precipitation will cause great harm, The DOE report noted that, based on short-term improvement impact in the next five years,all LED on the environment impact of today is quite small.
When market-oriented wants to save money for the customers and company, the incandescent light bulb change to use to save energy in lighting. We can estimate that LED lights and CFLs impact on the environment reduce today's 3 to 10 times.
