LG unveils Eco-Friendly Products

To create a more eco-friendly environment, the LG Electronics has unveiled the PuriCare Wearable Mask, steam and ultraviolet C (UV-C) light robot designed to kill viruses on heavily touched surfaces.

From the latest home appliances and electronics to earbuds and smart masks, the company has continued to demonstrate its commitment to make sure its products contribute to a more sustainable world.
Many of its advanced home appliances, such as its smart ovens and washing machines, are integrated with LG SmartThinQ compatibility, enabling users to control appliances remotely and monitor operations.
Championing innovation for a better planet, LG aims to help consumers pursue a healthier and more connected lifestyle through the use of innovative products with environmental changes in mind.
According to its General Manager, Air Solutions Division, Jung June Yoon, PuriCare Wearable Mask is an exciting addition to the company’s  growing lineup of products designed to deliver meaningful health and hygiene benefits.
“Not many air purifiers provide 360-degree air purification, and LG’s PuriCare 360° Air purifier does that and more, strategically designed close to the floor so that air from top to bottom is clean for all adults and toddlers alike –to reap the benefits. This purifier uses a powerful filtration system and lets users know the level of their air quality via the easy user interface on top.
The company disclosed that the wearable air purifier has a model in every size one could possibly need. “PuriCareMini Air Purifier weighs just 530 grams (1.17 lbs.) so it can be taken anywhere –an office, café or car. Equipped with a total allergen removal filter, the device can handle particles as large as a human hair and as small as ultra-fine dust (PM 1.0).
“This purification option utilises a near silent Twin Tornado Dual Fan to dispense clean air much farther than you’d expect from such a compact device, and will do so for 8 hours before needing a recharge.
The Steam and Ultraviolet C (UV-C) light robot, called “steam” technology, might be a bit of a stretch given that steam has been around since the formation of the earth but harnessing that steam and UV-C light in consumer and commercial products is what LG has been able to do with much success.”
Hari Elluru, Head of Corporate Marketing, LG Electronics, West Africa Operations,  said LG is finding other creative ways to use ultraviolet-C rays to protect the public.

He said the LG CLOi UV-C robot was developed to clean high-traffic public areas.

“LG’s CLOi robot has a built-in motion sensor that shuts it off when people are around, and it is meant for restaurants, corporate offices and retail stores. It can navigate around tables, chairs and other furniture by itself, generally disinfecting a room’s touchable surfaces in up to 30 minutes. CLOi robot, which is  a South Korean technology, looks like a plug-in space heater on wheels and is set to be digitally unveiled recently at CES, which was among the world’s biggest tech conferences but went virtual this year.
The device will ship to LG’s business customers in April.
“LG Tone Free is another product that uses UVnano LED to keep customers healthier. These true wireless earbuds are the ultimate accessory for music lovers and conference callers with a case that clean the earbuds while they’re being charged,” he said.
Elluru said the LG ProBake Convection Oven is not only lauded for its supreme cooking skills, but for its ability to stay clean as well.
“LG’s EasyClean feature fills the inside of the oven with steam to make wiping away cooking residue effortless so that your next meal is prepared in a clean, spotless interior. It also means there’s no crusty build up inside the oven to create uneven heat dispersal leading to undercooked sections of meat, which can be dangerous.
“And after the meal is over, LG’s dishwasher is there to make those dishes spic and span clean and to also make your dishes and utensils safer, with its high temperature steam which is 99.99 percent effective in eliminating germs and bacteria.”
Over the last decade, the company has unveiled commitments, goals and bids to work with homeowners and businesses to create a more eco-friendly environment.

LG’s Industry-Leading Technology Powers Refrigerators That
Deliver Superior Performance and Energy Savings

LG double Door-in-Door refrigerator with all the doors opened

SEOUL, Sep. 2, 2015 — At IFA 2015 in Berlin, LG Electronics (LG) is introducing its latest line of advanced refrigerators that have been specifically with European consumers in mind. The company’s energy-efficient refrigerators deliver convenience enhancing features such as the Dual Door-in-Door™ System which keeps food fresh longer and helps the interior stay better organized. The new cutting-edge lineup is designed to meet the needs of eco-conscious European consumers looking to maximize their convenience in the kitchen.

Inverter Linear Compressor Ensures Maximum Energy Savings

LG’s bottom-freezer refrigerators are industry leaders in efficiency, with a Total No Frost energy grade rating of A+++ -20 percent made possible by the refrigerator’s Inverter Linear Compressor. This advanced compressor utilizes a straight piston drive instead of a conventional reciprocating drive, resulting in less internal friction, higher reliability and greater durability with less noise. In tests conducted by VDE, LG refrigerators featuring Inverter Linear Compressors proved to be approximately 32 percent more energy efficient1 and up to 25 percent quieter2 than their non-Inverter counterparts. The company is so confident in the durability of the compressor that it is backed by a 10-year warranty.

Outstanding Convenience with Dual Door-in-Door

LG made consumers’ lives easier with its innovative Door-in-Door technology to give family members quick access to frequently sought food items. LG has taken this one step further by adding another Door-in-Door compartment, doubling the convenience. The right Door-in-Door compartment is accessible from the outside at the push of a button, making the space perfect for items that are frequently consumed by every member of the family, such as snacks and drinks. The left Door-in-Door compartment can be opened with the Hidden Easy Open Handle at the bottom of the door and is ideal for storing essential cooking ingredients such as pre-chopped vegetables, condiments and sauces. Both Door-in-Door compartments are equipped with Moving Baskets, enabling users to easily adjust the height of the internal compartments as they see fit.

The refrigerator’s Door-in-Door design reduces the amount of cold air escaping by up to 47 percent 3. With the addition of a second independent Door-in-Door compartment, cold air loss is further reduced.

Intelligent Organization with Smarter Storage

Thanks to the Dual Door-in-Door feature, foodstuffs can be stored in easily navigable sections, improving organization and maximizing convenience. In addition, the insulation walls of the multi-door refrigerators have been narrowed, enabling even more storage space. What’s more, the central partition found in most two door refrigerators has been eliminated, freeing up even more space.

Keep Foods Fresh with Total No Frost Technology

LG has long been the leader in Total No Frost technology, a key feature included in all of LG’s refrigerators sold in the European market. Total No Frost technology creates the ideal food storage environment by using a fan to uniformly dispersing cold air throughout the space. And LG refrigerators are equipped with Multi Air Flow to evenly regulate the interior temperature. Select LG refrigerators feature the unique Pure N Fresh air filtration system which circulates purified air through air flow channels to remove odors and keep food fresher longer.

Convenient Features and Hassle-Free Smart Technology

LG’s Smart Diagnosis™, featured on certain refrigerator models, allows call center representatives to quickly diagnose any problems the refrigerator may encounter without having to make a house visit. Moist Balance Crisper™ keeps fruits and vegetables from rotting by maintaining the correct moisture balance.

Glass Bottom-Freezer’s Award Winning Design

LG’s premium contour glass bottom-freezer refrigerator was recognized at the 2014 Red Dot Design Award for pairing refined aesthetics and efficiency-enhancing features. The contour glass exterior of this premium model features an easy-to-use display and features an attractive chrome wine rack. A premium modern design enhances the entire package for a refrigerator that will look great in any kitchen.

“LG’s latest refrigerators have been designed to reflect European consumers’ consideration of the environment and preference for convenient home solutions,” said Jo Seong-jin, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company. “Every day we strive to create new technologies and convenience-enhancing features to meet the expectations of our customers which enable us to keep our leadership in the premium refrigerator market.”

Visitors to IFA are encouraged to experience LG’s home appliances for themselves in Hall 18 of Messe Berlin from September 4-9.
