LedvanceNatureloop lamps and luminaires are made of at least 40 per cent post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastics.

Ledvance has introduced a range of lamps and luminaires with at least 40 per cent recycled plastics.

The all-new Natureloop lamps and luminaires are made of at least 40 per cent post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastics.

As part of the first wave of the Natureloop product range, Ledvance is launching 20 Osram-labeled lamps. The LED Classic Natureloop lamps feature housing and diffusors made from PCR plastics. They cover replacement wattages from 40W to 100W with a luminous flux of 470 lm up to 1521 lm. They are available in three shapes with 2700K and 4000K colour temperatures.

Additionally, the first wave of Natureloop products includes six damp proof luminaires that are sold under the Ledvance brand. The Submarine Natureloop features housing, diffusor and clips made of at least 40 per cent PCR plastics.

The IP65 protected luminaires feature a new look with their stained white colour appearance. They are launched as single or double versions with 7W (2x7W), 13.5W (2×13.5W) and 20W (2x20W) respectively as well as a luminous flux between 110 lm and 6200 lm and a colour temperature of 4000K. The luminaires will be available in retail and online from this month.

‘In line with our overall sustainability endeavours under the Ledvance Loop umbrella, we took a critical look at our products to see if it is technically possible to use recyclable materials for them,’ Sebastian Schweissgut, Head of Product and Portfolio Management at Ledvance, told the Circular Lighting Report.

‘Our goal is to reduce the use of new plastics and increase the recycling rate in our manufacturing process.

‘We’re excited to see customers’ reactions to our all-new product range of more sustainable lamps and luminaires and look forward to announcing more products soon.’

Recently, Ledvance introduced the sub-brand Ledvance Loop for all of the company’s sustainability initiatives, including the launch of the Natureloop and Everloop product ranges.
