All of Lamp Recyclers recycling processing of end-of-life lamps is done at an EPA approved facility.
Once the end-of-life lamps have been consolidated and are ready for processing, they are fed directly into a crusher/processor that separates the glass,aluminium end caps and mercury containing phosphor powder.
The phosphor powder is then placed into a distiller's vaccum chamber where heat and vacuum is applied, causing the mercury to vapourise. The organic particles carried by the gases are oxidized in the post combustion chamber prior to entering the highly efficient cooling traps, where the mercury condenses into liquid mercury.

Feeding Tubes into Machine
The four main elements recovered from end-of-life mercury containing lamps are typically recycled as:
  • Glass - glass wool insulation
  • Aluminium - Aluminium ingots that are used in industry for a variety of applications
  • Phosphor Powder - Bulking agent for fertiliser
  • Mercury - Dental amalgam (fillings).
