LAMP publishes environmental info for its luminaires
Spanish firm LAMP has become the latest lighting manufacturer to publish the environmental impact of its products in an open forum.
The Barcelona-based company, part of the Nordeon group of lighting brands, has uploaded the data on two of its best-selling ranges onto the Open DAP platform.
It has published the Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) of both the Fili and Kombic families.
These official documents show the environmental impact of the luminaires based on the life cycle analysis (LCA), which evaluates the impact in the manufacture and construction phase, the use phase and the end of life cycle phase.
Fil is a linear luminaire family with a wide range of lengths.
It is available for surface, recessed and recessed trimless installations, with six standardised lengths; and with black, white or grey matt finishing.
It integrates LED technology with warm white and neutral white colour temperature. Models with DALI regulation drivers are available.
Made of recycled aluminium extrusion at a rate of 80- 85 per cent, reducing the carbon footprint of products and processes, as well as the environmental impact across the entire value chain.
Kombic is a large family of recessed and surface mounted downlights for general indoor lighting applications. It consists of three ranges according to its size and luminous flux: Kombic 100, 150, and 200.
Open Dap is an official, public and freely accessible database of environmental information on construction products.
It is based on a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of the luminaires using the ISO 14040, EN 14025, EN 15804+A2 and EN 15978 standards.
It was developed by the Advanced and Sustainable Construction (CAS) research group of the Instituto de Ciencias de la Construcción Eduardo Torroja (IETcc) belonging to the Agencia Estatal Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC).
• The information is available both on Lamp’s website, within each family, or from the download page of technical files: https://www.lamp.es/en/technical-files_184481
• Recolight offers special one-day training workshops on ‘Lighting product design for a Circular Economy’. Hosted by industrial designer Simon Fisher of F Mark, the CPD-accredited event explores the design criteria, regulations and standards to help lighting manufacturers apply and demonstrate circular economy principles in product development.
