14 LEDs 90% more efficient than traditional bulbs Contain complex mix of materials Low recovery rates, particularly from consumer

15 Detachable core sent in the mail Web connected – performance monitoring, wireless control “Consumer Lighting As A Service” Lease costs < energy savings Aim is to enable 95% of the materials to be returned to use Better design & service
