UK to ban Halogen & fluorescent light bulbs in a switch to ‘green’ LED alternatives

The move will reduce the UK’s CO2 emissions by 1.26million tons a year, equivalent to removing 500,000 cars from the roads, it is claimed.

Halogen sales will be outlawed from September. New laws will see fluorescent bulbs phased out from 2023.

The plans, reportedly set to be announced today, include a ban on the sale of lighting fixtures with bulbs that can’t be replaced. These account for 100,000 tons out of a total 1.5million tons of electrical waste generated in Britain each year.
