  • Webinar: Life-Cycle Assessment of Energy and Environmental Impacts of LED Lighting Products


Department of Energy Hosts LED Event

March 28, 2013


DOE will host a 60-minute live webcast on its recently completed three-part study of the life-cycle energy and environmental impacts of LED lighting products relative to incandescent and CFL alternatives. The reports for Parts 1 and 2 were published in February 2012 and June 2012, respectively, providing a literature review and life-cycle assessment (LCA) for lamps utilizing these three light source technologies.

Presenters Jason Tuenge of Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and Brad Hollomon of Compa Industries will focus on findings from Part 3, which augments the LCA results with chemical analysis of a variety of lamps using standard testing procedures from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the State of California. A total of 22 samples, representing 11 different lamps, were tested to ascertain whether potentially toxic elements are present in concentrations that exceed regulatory thresholds for hazardous waste. Part 3 of the report is slated for release by late March, and will be available on the DOE SSL website.
