In Sweden, leading global appliance company, Electrolux, developed a refrigerator prototype where all the visible plastic parts are made of bioplastics from renewable sources. The bioplastic for the refrigerator has a more than 80% lower carbon footprint compared to the conventional plastics used today. The prototype is the world’s first refrigerator made of bioplastic and part of Electrolux strategy to create more sustainable home appliances.

The material used in the refrigerator has been provided by NatureWorks, a world-leading supplier of biopolymers. The bioplastic for the refrigerator has 80% lower CO2 equivalent emissions compared to the conventional plastic used in current fridges. The bioplastic refrigerator is still in development and there is currently no timeframe set for when the product will be officially launched on the market.
