Carbon Reduction Technology (CRT) is pleased to announce our acquisition of the Waveguide product range, following the voluntary liquidation of Birmingham-based Waveguide Lighting Ltd.
The LED-based lighting solution incorporates patented Waveguide light injection technology which uses the total internal reflection (TIR) principle. A single LED is used to illuminate an optically clear light chamber. A reflector is printed along the length of the chamber, causing light to disperse evenly along its length thus avoiding the glare associated with most LED lighting solutions. As there are no secondary optics or diffusers, energy saving is maximised.
William Robson, managing director of CRT, comments: "We have resold Waveguide products for some years as a solution for low bay and office installations. While the excellent energy efficiency of the Waveguide technology is important, it is the quality of the light output which is outstanding. The anti-glare quality of the technology is essential for lower situated luminaires.
“The new product range fits nicely into the Carbon Reduction Technology smart lighting strategy, complimenting the existing product range of commercial and street lighting systems.”

Take a look at our latest exciting photography expedition to Renault Trucks South in Reading. The facility recently had a full lighting refit, including high bay, low bay, office and foyer lighting plus a fully integrated smart control and monitoring system.
In November last year we were delighted to receive a Lux Award for Industrial and Transport Lighting Project of the Year, in conjunction with Volvo CE, Motherwell and enModus Smart Building Solutions.
The Lighting Journal has, this month, published the full story of this game-changing project, including more detail on the actual financial and carbon savings achieved via the lighting upgrade:

Once again we've been out and about visiting customers with our exceptional Marmalade Toast photographer in tow. This time, it was the turn of Volvo CE in Motherwell, Scotland - the highbay project which recently won a Lux Award!
Carbon Reduction Technology (CRT) has achieved Accredited Supplier status with the Carbon Trust. Accreditation comes with a listing on the Carbon Trust's Green Business Directory.
The Carbon Trust aims to provide independent evaluation and validation, setting a reliable quality standard. Applicants are thoroughly vetted against a set of detailed and stringent criteria, covering essential business practices and processes.
The Carbon Trust has also previously carried out an incubation case study featuring one of CRT's early industrial customers - a Volvo Construction Equipment facility (previously Terex Trucks) in Motherwell, Scotland. Read more here.
We are pleased to announce success at the Lux Awards 2018, winning the Industrial and Transport Lighting Project of the Year category with a joint entry submitted by Carbon Reduction Technology, enModus and Volvo.
The project, also the subject of a Carbon Trust case study, covers the upgrade of a Volvo construction equipment site in Motherwell Scotland to Smart Connected Lighting. The facility now has approximately 950 CRT high efficiency luminaires installed with ambient light and occupancy sensors, networked into a remote control and reporting system.
The new lighting system is delivering an average energy saving of approximately 84%, which equates to a huge CO2 and financial savings for the facility every month.
Paul Hudson, Operations Director at Volvo comments: “This project is testament to the forward-thinking employees within of our business. With the smart connected lighting solution in place, we are another few steps closer to reaching our goal of becoming a carbon neutral site.”
Alan Robson, Sales Director at Carbon Reduction Technology comments: "When a project like this picks up an award it really helps to highlight what a massive impact a lighting upgrade can have on a business - both financially and environmentally. Volvo, Motherwell, absolutely deserve the recognition for the amazing strides they are making towards becoming carbon neutral."
We are delighted to announce that Carbon Reduction Technology (CRT), in collaboration with enModus and Terex, Volvo, have been shortlisted for a Lux Award this November, in the Industrial and Transport Lighting Project of the Year category.
The entry focuses on the project to retrofit the Terex, Volvo facility in Motherwell, Scotland with super efficient LED high bay lighting and a revolutionary Smart Control System which operates and communicates using the power lines. The ongoing project has also been the focus of a recent Carbon Trust case study.
CRT Director Alan Robson comments: "We're obviously thrilled to have been shortlisted; it's a testament to the hard work and innovation of everyone involved in the project that we've made it through the initial stages, not to mention the incredible drive and motivation which Terex, Volvo have demonstrated in their mission to become carbon neutral. Representatives from all three companies will be attending the awards dinner in November, which we're all very much looking forward to. Whatever the result, it promises to be a night to remember."
