Consumers can't spot the difference between bulb types

It's official: European consumers struggle to tell apart different bulb types, easily confusing LEDs with incandescents, CFLs, metal halides, and others. So declared Brussels-based EucoLight, which cares about the muddle because it oversees lamp recycling in Europe, where different waste procedures can apply for different bulbs. In a survey, EucoLight showed images of the varieties to consumers in six European countries, and found plenty of bafflement. “Most consumers have difficulty in differentiating different lamp types,” said Nigel Harvey, a director at EucoLight. “That is why it is logical for all waste lamps to be collected in the same container.”
