The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is pleased to announce that LG Electronics has been awarded the EPA’s ENERGY STAR® Emerging Technology Award (ETA) for Advanced Adaptive Compressor Technology that reduces energy usage and lowers greenhouse gas emissions.

The 43 refrigerator-freezer models awarded the ETA outperform the federal minimum standard by at least 25 percent when the compressor is in adaptive mode compared to when the compressor is in a fixed-speed mode. They also contain low global-warming potential (GWP) (below 15) refrigerant and foam.

The ENERGY STAR® Emerging Technology Award is given to innovative technologies that meet rigorous performance criteria to reduce energy use and lower greenhouse gas emissions.
