Environmentally friendly lighting. (Product Spotlight).

GE Lighting has made manufacturing improvements, along with a simplification of its fluorescent lighting line, to provide a wide range of products compliant with the Toxic Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP) at no increase in cost.

All GE two-, three-, and four-foot T8 linear fluorescent lamps are now Ecolux[R] products, which exceed the TCLP standards set by the EPA. The TCLP test is a landfill disposal test used by the federal government to determine whether used fluorescent lamps are to be managed as standard or hazardous waste upon disposal. Having passed the TCLP test requirements, Ecolux lamps are considered nonhazardous waste per federal regulations.
