Project @ a Glance

Contents on the CD Rom

  • Compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) are smaller versions of the familiar fluorescent strip-lights
  • Compact fluorescent lamps operate by energizing the mercury in the lamp, which then gives off ultraviolet radiation that causes phosphorus on the inside of the glass tube to glow. Fluorescent lamps require a ballast to regulate the current that the lamp receives.
  • Materials in a CFL include glass, phosphorus, mercury, argon, plastic ballast casing and an electronic ballast circuit board
  • When compared to incandescent lamps of the same luminous flux, CFLs use less energy and have a longer rated life as well as save 2000 times their own weight in greenhouse gases. CFLs' average life is between 8 to 15 times more than incandescent. While the purchase price of a CFL is typically 3 to 10 times higher than an equivalent incandescent lamp, the extended lifetime coupled with lower energy usage, more than compensates for the higher initial outlay. CFLs are designed to replace incandescent lamps and fit conveniently in the existing light fixtures being used for incandescent bulbs.
  • Governments all over the world are either encouraging or coercing people to replace  tungsten lamps with CFLs to save energy and reduce our carbon footprint.
  • Future Market will be driven by energy efficient compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), improved light emitting diode (LED) technology, and popular high intensity discharge headlamps for motor vehicles. Building applications will be the fastest growing market.
