Dometic is introducing a new cooler, the Dometic CoolFun SC30B, made with a biocomposite material which is fully recyclable, light and strong, and achieves a 26 percent lower carbon footprint compared to conventional coolers made from polypropylene.

The biocomposite contains bast fibres 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 fibres give the surface a stylish, natural look and make every single cooler unique. The sustainability- conscious Dometic CoolFun SC30B 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.

Domestic says it is keen to support the trend for more and more consumers to consider their carbon footprint when choosing products.

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 product will be available from May 2019 onwards.
