LG Eco Home – Linear Compressor

July 24th, 2012 by LG Blog UK

LG is so confident in the reliability of Linear Compressor that all cooling products that have this feature will carry a 10 Year Parts Warranty on the motor. LG Core Tech - Technology...

LG feature in Greenpeace’s Green Electronics Survey

January 13th, 2011 by LG Blog UK
 
In June 2010 Greenpeace challenged the electronics industry to submit their greenest products judged on three criteria; removing toxic substances, responsible take-back of their end of life products and energy efficiency. LG entered the GD510 Pop mobile phone for judging and came third in a very close competition, narrowly missing out on second place. The LG Pop was free of PVC and BFR (brominated flame retardants) and also performed remarkably well in the ‘Energy Use’ category, scoring an impressive 29 out of a possible 30. The LG Pop phone is no stranger to recognition for its energy efficiency having already picked up...

LG go green with a new solar powered air conditioner

August 6th, 2010 by LG Blog UK
 
Offering green solutions to consumers is something LG have rightly invested heavily in over the past few years. These initiatives include a reduction of 2.1 million tons of greenhouse emissions in the first 6 months of 2009 and a $168 million investment in repurposing a decommissioned factory into a factory to make solar panels. And some of these solar panels may well find their way onto LG’s latest air conditioning unit. It’s a wonderfully simple solution really – we use air conditioning as an answer to hot weather, so why not harness the sunlight causing the heat to help us cool...

Plant Powered Air Purifier

September 17th, 2009 by LG Blog UK
 
French designer Mathieu Lenhanner together with Harward professor David Edwards have come up with a organic air purifier , powered by a houseplant. The clever invention goes by the name of ANDREA and will be on sale from October. So how does it work? The plant absorbes the air through its leaves and roots and the filtered air provides a more environmentally friendly option to the standard air purifier. It works best in a room as big as 40 m2 and it is very easy to maintain as the plant requires simply watering. For more information look at this...
