The UK government has announced plans to ban the sale of halogen bulbs in the country from September.
It was announced by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy on Wednesday. The decision is expected to contribute to the country’s efforts to reduce carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere.
“The government today announced plans to stop the sale of halogen lamps from September as part of a wider UK effort to tackle climate change,” the statement said.
The British government also announced its intention to ban the sale of fluorescent lamps in September 2023.
In this way the authorities will ensure the transition of the population of the kingdom to more energy-efficient LED lamps. The authors of the initiative suggest that such a move would reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 1.26 million tonnes, which is equivalent to removing more than half a million cars from the roads.
