No More Harmful Substances
As of summer of 2007, all Liebherr appliances in North America met RoHS compliance making Liebherr the FIRST refrigeration manufacturer to comply with this practise worldwide.
RoHS stands for the “Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic equipment” and eliminates the use of major hazardous substances in the production of Liebherr products such as lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd) and certain types of chrome and biphenyl.
Liebherr has found better, greener ways to produce quality products - materials that are less damaging and have less impact on our eco-systems.
Recycling old components will no longer cause issue because there is no lead and mercury to be disposed of.
RoHS compliance will certainly become mandatory in the years to come in North America (it is already being implemented in Europe) but Liebherr has decided to be proactive instead of reactive.
Why continue using these substances when they are known to be harmful?
