REPORT- TECHNICAL FEASABILITY ANALYSIS FOR THE IDENTIFICATION OF TYPES OF LAMPS IN RECYCLING STREAMS

Eucolight - Publications
15 July 2021

A study performed by Fraunhofer IZM and mandated by EucoLight

This report presents a technical feasibility study on the technology assessment for the separation of collected End-of-Life (EoL) lamps, more specifically the technical possibilities for separating conventional gas discharge lamps (GDLs) from conventional light-emitting diode (LED) lamps.

​The project consisted of first a theoretical phase in which technological possibilities for sorting methods were explored and described. Based on this potential analysis, followed the testing phase, concentrating on static and dynamic testing with three promising sorting technologies. Ultimately however, only two methods, the blue light and electromagnetic induction tests, were considered promising and carried out in detail.
