Automotive Lighting and the Environment

SYLVANIA's products, halogen, incandescent, HID, LED and ballasts, all have been designed to be the most environmentally responsible as possible.    

As of January 1, 2005 all lead and heavy metals will be removed from the manufacturing process for incandescent and halogen products. The quantities have been extremely low allowing these products to be disposed of in normal household refuse and now they will be even more safe.  Use caution when handling halogen bulbs because they are under pressure and have the potential to explode. 

Because HID light sources contain minute traces of mercury for efficient operation, SYLVANIA's commitment to the environment is driving efforts to produce a mercury free HID light source, which will meet both legal requirements and customer expectations.
