Remanufacturing How to rebuild a light fitting

If the lighting sector is to become truly sustainable, it will need an ecosystem of companies with expertise in remanufacturing luminaires when they are removed from a building. But rebuilding, upgrading, testing, certifying and reselling lighting products is no easy task.

In this webinar, the panel shared their experience and insights; explaining how to create a successful business.

We heard from:

  • Introduction and industry update from Ray Molony
  • Tom Ruddell, Lead Remanufacturing Engineer at Egg Lighting
    Compliance considerations for reuse of luminaires
  • Emilio Hernandez, Lighting Designer.  Co-Founder of Ström and the GreenLight Alliance
    Client barriers to adoption of reused equipment, ideas on overcoming them.
  • Simon Fisher, Director, F Mark
    An update to BS8887, the BSI standard for remanufacture.
  • Nigel Harvey, Recolight CEO
    Making re-use a reality: best practice for contractors
  • Kevin Stubbs, Technical Sales Manager, Llumarlite Ltd
    Lighting – Review & Refresh vs Replace?
  • Panel discussion  with Q & A chaired by Ray Molony

 

CONCLUSIONS FROM OUR PANEL

“It’s so encouraging to see tenders emerging where the  request is for both a Remanufactured scheme as well as a New lighting scheme. Taking remanufacturing from a complementary side show to a credible alternative to New is vital to deliver a robust circular economy for lighting and achieve emissions reduction targets.”
Simon Fisher FSLL, Director, F Mark Ltd

“I believe people and companies have an underlying desire to do the right thing, i.e. repairing and remanufacturing where possible. We need to work together to raise awareness & turn that desire towards a need. As a result more safe, suitable & sustainable long term decisions can be taken. We cannot continue to allow the short term decisions that our industry suffers – which currently create & leave a legacy of waste and energy”
Kevin Stubbs, Technical Sales Manager, Llumarlite Ltd

“Awareness that recycling does not usually represent the best outcome for end of life luminaires is much higher. That is pleasing because it means end-users and specifiers are more likely to consider remanufactured product.”
Nigel Harvey, Chief Exec, Recolight

“A world in which luminaires are removed, taken for reconditioning and then put back on the market has lots of implications for our supply chain and it’s important they we as an industry work on solutions for the inevitable pain points that will arise.”
Ray Molony, Head of Content, Build Back Better awards | Editor, Circular Lighting Report

“Remanufacture can provide a range of benefits to end users but this must be achieved without compromise on compliance. Remanufacturers need to be diligent in identifying, assessing and testing remanufactured products prior to declaring conformity and placing products on the market, using methods appropriate to production volumes, end application and product type.”
Tom Ruddell, Lead Remanufacturing Engineer at Egg Lighting

“The GLA exists for precisely these cross discipline discussions. Recolight have been  an excellent thought leader in their commitment to knowledge share on the circular economy.”
Emilio Hernandez, Lighting Designer.  Co-Founder of Ström and the GreenLight Alliance

    Lighting Designer & Co-Founder of Ström and founding member of GreenLight Alliance

    Emilio studied Product Design from Nottingham Trent University, and subsequently began his career in lighting at Hilson Moran Partnership, developing 3D modelling techniques to simulate daylight & sunlight availability in buildings.

    After transitioning into artificial lighting design he moved to GIA Equation in 2010, working on a range of commercial, facade, landscape and hospitality projects. This presented opportunities to work on projects in diverse locations within Europe, MEA & Asia developing a strong understanding of working practices, design priorities and project approaches in these regions.

    In 2014, Emilio joined ‘Nulty’ where he became a Director, working on a broad mix of projects, including: large scale residential and commercial developments, public realm masterplans, Retail, hospitality and Food & Beverage projects.

    The varied scale and range of projects has helped him appreciate the scope of the lighting designer and where they can add value at key points in the design and construction process.

    He also recognises the importance of establishing the lighting designers brief and design narrative which along with regular communication are critical to delivering value to the team and client.

    Throughout his career, Emilio has been an active member of the lighting community and has spoken at design conferences and provided CPD’s to raise awareness of the benefits that human focussed and sustainable lighting design can provide.

    Moving to Sweden and co-founding Ström has provided Emilio with an opportunity to form partnerships to develop the sustainability values needed by the construction industry to evolve and grow over the next 30 years.

    Emilio is also a founding member of the GreenLight Alliance and current sitting chair.
