All conventional UV lamps (low- or medium-pressure UV lamps) typically use between 5-200 mg of mercury per lamp. The Minamata Convention, which regulates the emissions and releases of mercury to the environment, doesn’t prohibit mercury-based lamps for disinfection purposes. Nonetheless, there’s a growing trend toward transitioning to non-mercury alternatives.
PureFize light sources contain no mercury. No materials or substances harmful to the environment are used during manufacturing. The light sources have long lifespan, and the entire system can be treated just like ordinary electronic waste.
