UV light opens up a whole new world

UV treatment is an application with major potential for the future. It will probably be possible to use UV light in many different areas. One totally new and promising application is UV treatment in white goods. UV light enables food that is stored in a fridge to last for up to one week longer. This can bring enormous savings in the form of significantly reduced volumes of food waste. According to the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), it is estimated that every year one third of all food produced for consumption is thrown away. In contrast to mercury lamps, LightLab’s technology also works very well at very low temperatures.

UV light can also be used to good effect to eliminate the presence of bacteria and other microorganisms in dishwashers and other household appliances where traditional UV lamps containing mercury are not suitable for installation.
