New light bulb could ‘revolutionize’ industry, cut emissions significantly

New light bulb could change the industry.

It could be the biggest transition for the lighting industry since Thomas Edison ushered in the age of mass-produced light bulbs.

A new light bulb design utilizes plastic rather than glass, providing consumers with a remarkably efficient light source, according to its inventor, Wake Forest University professor Dr. David Carroll. The new light source is said to be twice as efficient as fluorescent bulbs, possibly providing consumers with a massive savings over the course of time.
