BE ECO – THINK GLOBAL: Ecodesign by LEDVANCE
It is important for us to develop ecologically sophisticated products in order to contribute to the sustainable protection of resources. Quality products are created based on this philosophy that is characterised by a long lifespan and high energy efficiency.
LEDVANCE ensures that environmental impact is reduced, with a product life cycle based on sustainability, ranging from the product idea to recycling.
Product portfolio Halogen lamps
The European regulations setting ecodesign requirements for energy related products will continue to influence the lighting market in 2016 with the aim of banning inefficient products. As of September 1, 2016, the placing on the market of mains voltage directional halogen lamps will therefore be banned in accordance with the third implementing measure 1194/2012. The following table gives an overview of the affected OSRAM lamps and the corresponding LED-based alternatives.
The following OSRAM lamps are affected by this ruling
- HALOPAR 20/30/38
- HALOPAR 16
- HALOGEN CLASSIC R50/R63/R80
A list with lamps to be phased out and LED alternatives can be found here:
Modifications 2012 and 2015 on the HPD lamps range
These lamps are not provided anymore
With the second step of the EU directive 245/2009 (ErP), 347/2010 (ErP) as well as the terms of the EU directive 2011/65 (RoHS 2) coming into force on 13th April 2015, all mercury vapor lamps (HQL), mercury hybrid lamps (HWL) and many sodium vapor lamps (NAV plug-in) are no longer permitted to be placed on the market in the European Union.
Finding the best solution, together
Whether HQL, HWL or NAV plug-in: Obsolete high-pressure discharge lamps are found everywhere in urban public lighting and street lighting.
The optimal solution: LED upgrade for your luminaires
If you use HQL lamps a luminaire upgrade to LED is as easy as never before: Decide for the new PARATHOM HQL LED lamps, the ideal LED alternatives for applications where high luminous flux is required – and consequently for energy savings of up to 70% and maximum ease of maintenance.
Pragmatic solutions: System replacement
As an alternative for NAV plug-ins a system replacement is recommended to achieve a long term, efficient and economic solution: With new, modern OSRAM HCI or NAV Super lamps with dimmable electronic control gear. Replaceable equipment mounts facilitate the exchange process, and up to 55 % energy can be saved with a system change.
If HWL lamps are used, system replacement is not possible. In this case we recommend new luminaires - modern heritage or innovative LED luminaires - as the ideal solution.
International environment and climate protection goals
Within the framework of Kyoto 1997 climate protection objectives, the EU defined a series of measures for the economical and sustainable use of resources. Here you will find important information on the EU Directive 2009/125/EC, relating to the eco-design of energy-related products (ErP).
ErP implementation regulations and special purpose lighting
Special-purpose lamps designed essentially for applications such as traffic signals, terrarium lighting and household appliances and clearly indicated as such on accompanying product information are not subject to these eco-design requirements.
