Liebherr’s new 36-in. refrigerator, the 2062 series, marks the first time the German producer designed a platform specifically for the North American market. The OEM’s goal during the four-year design process was to achieve the best Energy Star rating in the size category. Energy efficiency was addressed through a refrigeration system with separate super-efficient variable-speed compressors for the refrigerator and the freezer. The company achieves a smaller environmental footprint overall through energy reuse in its factories, purifying factory wastewater, and using 100% recyclable packaging materials. Since 2000, the company has reduced use of chemicals 30%, solvents 5%, and energy consumption 5%. In 2007 the company was the first refrigerator maker to be RoHS compliant worldwide.
