EU Ban Sounds the Death Knell for Halogen Bulbs


British consumers might start finding it more difficult to lay their hands on the halogen spotlight bulbs they’ve used for so long once their stockist’s supplies run out, thanks to an EU edict that has branded them “inefficient”. An EU ban on halogen and traditional incandescent bulbs has been in effect in Continental Europe for quite some time now and, later this year it goes even further, outlawing halogen bulbs such as candle and more traditionally-shaped bulbs, too.
