From Havells’ website:

Always sensitive to the needs of the consumers and country, the company strives to serve them better with energy efficient light sources. The wide range of compact fluorescent lamps and luminaries from Havells are a result of this conviction.

At Havells, it is our philosophy to continuously upgrade products in order to best serve modern discerning consumers. We feel proud and privileged to share with you one such innovation of making Havells CFLs more environment friendly by introducing India’s first Green CFL.

Today, most of the CFL manufacturers worldwide use liquid mercury due to cost effectiveness and simpler technology. The disadvantage is that technically it is extremely difficult to limit the weight of liquid mercury (generally a CFL contains at least 3 to 5 times more than prescribed norms by Indian and International standards).

But we have modified all our CFL production lines and adopted PDT (Pill Dosing Technology). With PDT, we now use amalgamated mercury pills that are less harmful to the environment as compared to conventional use of liquid mercury. These pills also conform to Indian and International standards on use of mercury in CFLs.

In addition, we are the first Indian CFL manufacturers to have adopted RoHS, European norms on Restriction of Hazardous Substances in CFLs.

– Environment Friendly CFLs
– Quicker lumen stabilisation time
– Brighter light
– Brightness for longer period – maintains higher lumen
– No black spots
– RoHS compliant & ISI certified

We have been already manufacturing RoHS compliant CFLs for past some time. In order to spread awareness, we are announcing the arrival of India’s first Green CFLs through a new packaging design, using green colour.

It is good to see companies contribute towards environmental causes….
