GE Ecolux Linear Fluorescent Lamps

Ecolux® Fluorescent Lamps

All Ecolux® fluorescent lamps pass the EPA Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP) test. This TCLP test characterizes fluorescent lamp waste as either hazardous or non-hazardous for the purpose of disposal.

The mercury content of GE Ecolux® lamps has been reduced by over 80% versus older traditional fluorescent lamp designs. To assure long life, advanced coating technologies have been developed to minimize the absorption of mercury within the lamp.

Additionally, Ecolux® lamps use an exclusive material design that helps to prevent the small amount of mercury in the lamp from forming mercury compounds which may leach into groundwater after lamp disposal.
