Open day to mark end of successful research collaboration

The Relight Project, of which Wiser Recycling is a consortium member, is holding an open day to mark the end of their successful collaboration to help ensure sustainable recycling of lighting products.

The international research project by six European consortium members has tested and developed novel technologies 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.

Taking place at Wiser Recycling’s Norfolk facility at Freedom Farm, the open day will showcase the technology and demonstrate what has been achieved by the two year project to a small group of consortium members and guests.

Russell Hirst, Managing Director, Wiser Recycling says: “We are delighted to have been a part of this successful project working with other small and medium enterprises across Europe to find more efficient and cost effective ways to recycle CFLs. We look forward to having the opportunity to mark the end of the project with the open day and to share the findings of our work.”
