Quicksilver can cause damage to the brain and nerves or the metabolism. Low-pressure sodium lamps contain elementary sodium, which reacts heavily with water. 

Preventing/Reducing:

Use energy saving lamps to save electricity and money. Ask your reseller which types are appropriate for your use. Take a look on the directions on www.clever-akafen.lu.

Recycling/environment correct disposal:

Non-contaminated lamps are shredded and metal and glass are recycled. 

Lamps containing quicksilver are treated in a closed installation to recycle all components inclusive quicksilver. Quicksilver in products containing quicksilver is retrieved by distillation.
