Open day celebrates research collaboration

The Relight Project, of which Wiser Recycling is a consortium member, held an open day last month to celebrate their successful collaboration to help ensure sustainable recycling of lighting products.

Equipment from the Relight ProjectThe international research project by six European consortium members has tested and developed novel technologies over the last two years to find the most effective means of recycling high value materials from compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs). The project has identified the type, scale, set up and cost of process equipment that will turn end-of-life CFLs into clean, high value constituent materials of glass, plastic, metal and phosphor powder.

The open day took place at our Norfolk facility where the 15 guests and consortium members were given presentations about the project and its findings before seeing the technology that has been developed.

Edward Jones, Project Coordinator, C-Tech Innovation says: “We would like to thank all the consortium members who took part in this successful project and our guests who attended the open day. It was a great way to showcase our achievements and mark the end of this successful research collaboration.”
