Nonwovens Technology Brightens Lives Without Upping Energy Output

Researchers at RTI International are developing a nonwovens-based technology platform for the lighting industry. Called NLITe, the technology uses polymer nanofibers to increase the reflectivity of lighting fixtures, allowing them to provide up to 40% more light with 0% less energy. This technology works in any lighting fixture, from traditional fluorescents to emerging energy efficient LED based fixtures.
