Biodegradable street lighting

The LED lamps have an extremely long useful life of up to 100,000 hours, enabling them to be operated for about eleven years. The company is working intensively on developing casings made of plant-based bioplastics. "This can also be biodegradable", says Manfred Lackner, authorised signatory at Insolulight. The bioplastic can be decomposed into water and carbon dioxide by microorganisms such as fungi and bacteria. The casing is very robust and does not allow any water to seep inside. "We want to make LED lighting more long-lasting and help to achieve our climate and energy targets", Lackner adds. At present the company is conducting research in cooperation with the University of Applied Sciences, Upper Austria, Hagenberg Campus on lighting for airport runways which can be integrated into existing light fixtures without any additional excavation work.
