Consider this when doing a Sustainable Retrofit

Consider this when doing a Sustainable Retrofit

Sitting at home in the summer heat, your mind may start to wander to that fancy new air conditioner.

The next LED revolution is upon us, and it is ultraviolet

The next LED revolution is upon us, and it is ultraviolet

TOKYO — It took a decade of work and the help of two Nobel laureates, but industrial pump manufacturer Nikkiso is finally gearing up for the mass production of deep ultraviolet light-emitting diodes. These deep UV LEDs emit even shorter wavelengths of light than blue LEDs, and they have promising applications. Nikkiso envisions applications for its deep UV LEDs in three broad fields. First is the environmental field, where the sterilizing effects of deep UV radiation can be put to use disinfecting water and sewage. This is already done using mercury lamps, but the new LEDs have many advantages: They…
