More and more consumers are considering their carbon footprint when choosing products.
Dometic fully supports this trend by being the first in the industry to introduce a new, innovative biocomposite material for its latest thermoelectric cooler, the Dometic CoolFun SC 30B.
Anton Lundqvist, CTO, Dometic says; “Offering more greener choice is important to Dometic. This is a step in our efforts to enhance more sustainable products in our portfolio and we intend to accelerate these efforts in the years to come to lead this important shift in the industry.”
The biocomposite contains bast fibers from hemp plant which is exceptionally good at sequestering carbon. Using this strong material also means less fossil-fuel plastics in the product without compromising performance.
The fibers give the surface a stylish, natural look and make every single cooler unique. The sustainability-conscious Dometic CoolFun SC 30B is ideal for mobile adventures, transporting groceries, car trips, picnics, work lunches or garden parties.
The cooler can be operated by either 12 V or 230 V. It cools down to 18°C below the ambient temperature and has an additional warming function that heats the interior up to 65°C.
The USB port in the lid can be used for charging a mobile phone or other devices when the cooler is connected to a power source.
The product will be available from May 2019 onwards.
