Initially presents a projection of how much eletricity can be saved by changing the most used lamps by the brazilian for LED lamps (Light-emitting diode). After, a economic viability evaluation also is presented in this study. Also a descriptionof the reciclyng methodologies and disposal of the flourescent lamps and the danger who may be caused for health, are presented with the final conclusions of this research.
