CFL without Mecury

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

“Electron-Stimulated Luminescence, is a new kind of light bulb designed by Vu1, a Seattle-based company...a toxin-free alternative to mercury-containing CFLs, without compromising energy efficiency, quality or savings"

 

Anyone heard about these?  They are in the hype-phase currently.

wow - if this price is right, this could be huge. Everyone always calls out the mercury as the CFL objection, I'll definitely be interested in reading more about these.

Interesting.  According to the article they'll be comparable to CFLs in efficiency and cost.  Pretty cool.
