Mercury Content in SYLVANIA Lamps*
OSRAM SYLVANIA is continuously striving to reduce the levels of mercury in our lamps.
 

"This information should be obtained from MSDSs or other public literature from the manufacturer, or by
directly contacting the manufacturer/vendor and requesting a written statement reporting mercury content values."

If you are purchasing screw-based CFLs for the project, OSRAM SYLVANIA lamps do not need to be included in the calculation.  OSRAM SYLVANIA is part of the NEMA commitment to maximum mercury content in CFLs.
