Dometic has introduced a new thermoelectric cooler made from a fully-recyclable biocomposite material.

The Dometic CoolFun SC30B is said to have a 26% lower carbon footprint than conventional coolers made from polyproplylene.

Anton Lundqvist, chief technology officer at Dometic said that offering a 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,” he said.

Fossil-fuel

The biocomposite contains bast fibres from hemp plant which are exceptionally good at isolating carbon. Using this material, which has been nominated by the World Wildlife Fund as a ‘Climate Solver 2018’, also means fewer fossil-fuel plastics in the product.

Weighing 4.3kg and measuring 39.6 by 29.6 by 44.7cm, the cooler can fit up to six two-litre bottles and is suitable for a range of activities.

The cooler can be operated by either 12V or 230V. It cools 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.
