China May Release the Restrictions to Phase out Incandescent Light Bulbs

After the EU, the US, Australia and others have imposed restrictions to phase out incandescent light bulbs, it’s reported that China is in the process of making the roadmap for banning the use of these bulbs. The restriction is expected to be unveiled in March.

According to Wang Jinsui, director general of China Illuminating Engineering Society, said in China Business News, "The National Development and Reform Commission has been drafting the map."

Wang said the initial plan is to stop producing 100-watt incandescent bulbs after 2015 and ban them completely from 2018. China has provided subsidies for using energy-saving light bulbs since 2008, prompting many incandescent bulb producers to cut their output.
