Manufacturers of electrical equipment are increasingly being required to design products for reuse, upgradability, and recyclability.
This webinar on the October 28th will explore how luminaire producers can adapt their designs to encourage products to be reused at the end of first life, or at least to be more efficiently recycled.
Ray Molony, Build Back Better Awards, introduces the session, with presentations from:
Simon Fisher, Founder & Director of F Mark – ‘How to design a luminaire for the circular economy‘; sharing his experience of working with lighting manufacturers.
John Bullock, Publisher and editor at The Light Review gives an update to BS8887 – The standard driving compliance requirements for reuse and remanufacture of lighting fittings.
For the panel discussion, chaired by Ray, we will be joined by:
John Gorse, Technical Solutions Manager at Signify.
Ruth Kelly Waskett, Senior Associate at Hoare Lea and President of the Society of Light & Lighting.
Michael Colligan, Host of the Get a Grip on Lighting and Starving for Darkness Podcasts and President of Waste Diversion.
Zoltán Pilter, Product Regulatory Compliance Leader of Tungsram Group in the EMEA region.
“Embedding end of life management into the design of our products is a signal that our species is becoming more intelligent. It is something we have never done before but is critical to a future free of pollution.” Michael Colligan
“The natural conclusion to creating a circular economy for fixtures is to ensure that there is a route for those fixture to enjoy further lives after the original installation.” John Bullock
