LED ECO-SUSTAINABLE STREET AND URBAN LIGHTING
By means of a "low environmental impact technology", the society recognises the importance of several factors of global interest such as the over-consumption of natural resources and the polluting agents and waste reduction, from the very beginning of the production system to the recycling process and waste disposal.
The eco-compatibility of LED source drives from his own composition.
LEDs operate in compliance with EU directive RoHS (acronym for Reduction of Hazardous Substances Directive) which restricts the use and disposal of products containing mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls, polybrominated biphenyl ethers and most importantly lead.
In terms of sustainable development, the use of this new technology significantly reduces the environmental impact, producing a lower quantity of gas emissions such as CO2 (or carbon dioxide). The increasing amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere results in an increased greenhouse effect contributing to the rise in the global average temperature. A general climate warming has led many countries to sign the Kyoto Protocol: an agreement in which Nations officially agree to reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
In addition to this, all AEC LED lighting systems are made with recyclable materials such as aluminium, steel, glass and plastic that can be easily reused in many production processes.
