Ecological & Economic Advantages of Verbatim LED Lamps
While the KAITEKI Philosophy drives the development of technologies that make up Verbatim’s line of LED products, the company, along with its parent Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings Corporation (MCHC), believes that it has a responsibility to help preserve environmental resources for generations to come. The production of new LED technologies makes great strides in fulfilling those goals for the company.
LED lamps allow for great reductions in power consumption, along with reduced CO2 emissions, when compared to equivalent incandescent bulbs. Also, the longer life cycle of 40,000 hours, compared to 8,000 for CFL and 1,000 for incandescent lights, creates less need for replacement, effectively meaning less waste. Unlike CFLs, LEDs contain no mercury or other hazardous materials.
All of these factors combine to create energy-efficient and cost-saving lighting options that leave little or no negative environmental impact.
