Nila Inc. Environmentally Sustainable Lighting

Location:CA, US
Speaker:Jim Sanfilippo
Title:President / CEO
Primary Industry:Industrial Lighting
Executive Summary:The NiLA Lighting System uses 50% less electricity and generates 70% less heat than tungsten or HID lights (high intensity discharge), thus substantially reducing air conditioning costs not to mention creating a more comfortable working environment for its first target market – stage set lighting for the entertainment industry. LED’s (Light Emitting Diode) last up to 25 times longer than the best lamps for that market. The NiLA Lighting System will also cost less than its competitor’s products. Moreover, burned out HID lamps are toxic waste due to the mercury vapor inside them. The NiLA Lighting System, Environmentally Superior: NiLA Inc. is ready to manufacture the first LED lighting system powerful enough to illuminate an entire motion picture or television set without the use of mercury or lead. The system meets the European RoHS directive (Restrictions of Hazardous Substances) and will meet environmental regulatory changes that are being considered in California, Canada, China and other countries.
