  1. New Zealand Lighting Industry Product Stewardship PHASE 1 Assessment and Review Report prepared for Electricity Commission and Lighting Council of NZ By www.stewardship.co.nz

  2. About Stewardship Solutions • Work with companies, organisations and sectors to implement practical environmental initiatives • Prefer results over reports • Have worked on best practice for waste, energy, water with industry • Ket Bradshaw – Christchurch • Simon Wilkinson – Auckland

  3. Outline • How the market works • Product flows and volumes • End of life • Load on the environment • Product Stewardship overseas

  4. First, some definitions…. Incandescent, Fluorescent, High Intensity Discharge, LED

  5. Luminaires Control gear

  6. How the Market Works who where

  7. Product volumes and flows

  8. 32 millions lamps of all types imported into NZ in 2006 8.7 million mercury-containing lamps Source: Customs data

  9. Total waste ALL type of lamps in 2007 = 1,400 tonnes = 0.05% of solid waste in NZ (0.02% mercury lamps) Modelled mercury-containing lamp waste arisings

  10. Waste composition of discharge lamps 2006/2007

  11. 45kg of mercury arising from lamps in 2007 Expected to double in next 5 years from CFLs in use 45kg

  12. Mercury in products (US EPA) Electric Lighting 9%

  13. End-of-Life • Councils – some doing it, charges vary • Demolition contractors – luminaires salvaged, metal recycling, lamps to skip • Business to Business recycling – 1 service established • 91% of lamps to landfill

  14. Recycling • Advanced Recycling Australasia • Capacity for NZ and Australia and more • Offshore recycling likely to remain • Markets for recycled materials (glass, mercury) are limited in NZ

  15. Load on the Environment • The mercury dilemma • Mercury = energy efficiency = hazardous waste • Mercury CFL up to 80% more efficient • Lamps are small part of waste in NZ • Mercury from lamps is small portion of total mercury in products • The precautionary principle being applied worldwide • Public concern is growing – highly visible • Lighting readily controllable source of mercury • The public will be involved in disposal of the majority of this mercury • Need infrastructure and behaviour change

  16. Product Stewardship 8 1 7 2 6 3 5 4 Market shares of the total NZ gas discharge lamp [LFL, CFL, HID] market
