Green refrigeration

I have to admit, being a renter and using a fridge that I don't own, green refrigeration hasn't doesn't cross my mind on a regular basis. However, that changed when I was recently invited to an event for Liebherr's domestic appliances and learned a whole lot about green refrigerators. According to Liebherr, the company meets and exceeds Energy Star's rating requirements. Here's Liebherr's impressive list of green initiatives: • Liebherr was the first appliance manufacturer worldwide to remove CFCs (Chlorofluorocarbons) completely from the production process in 1993; • Since 2000, Liebherr’s considerable investment to ensure environmental compatibility has resulted in the reduced use of chemicals, solvents and energy consumption; • Liebherr has established central waste and resource collection stations at their manufacturing facilities; • The packaging materials on all products are 100 per cent recyclable; • The water used in the production process is purified and pollution-free; • The energy released during production is recovered and utilized again in heating the manufacturing environments. Check out Liebherr's fridge's below. I've also included an image of the handsome wine unit, for all you wine aficionados. For more information, visit the Liebherr website.
