Compact fluorescent lamps: Strong arguments to counter outdated views

Compact fluorescent lamps don’t have a good reputation. Unjustified: OSRAM’s modern compact fluorescent lamps easily refute the repeated criticism leveled at this technology group.

“Compact fluorescent lamps take a long time to reach their full brightness.”

Thanks to Quick light technology, many OSRAM DULUX lamps now shine brightly in an instant.

“Compact fluorescent lamps are large, are strangely shaped, and don’t fit every luminaire.”

Small, large, stylish or designed to look like a standard bulb – OSRAM compact fluorescent lamps are available in all shapes and sizes.

“Compact fluorescent lamps are difficult to dispose of.”

The compact fluorescent lamp has a very long lifespan, but if it should fail at some point, recycling it is really easy. OSRAM has established recycling systems in cooperation with other manufacturers in Europe to dispose of compact fluorescent and LED lamps in an environmentally friendly manner and in accordance with EU legislation. In Germany, this is done by Lightcycle GmbH. For more information, refer to

“Compact fluorescent lamps are a health risk.”

OSRAM compact fluorescent lamps comply with international requirements.

“Compact fluorescent lamps contain too much mercury.”

The mercury content in OSRAM compact fluorescent lamps is considerably lower than specified by the EU Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS 1). This small amount does not pose any significant threat to people or the environment and is not released during operation. For more information, go to:
