Realizing energy efficient innovations with BASF materials for appliances!

To increase energy efficiency, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and carbon footprint, a new version of the EU energy label for appliances was being introduced. Since 1 March 2021 the new energy label is applicable for the following four product categories:
fridges and freezers, dishwashers, washing machines, and television sets.

A product showing an A+++ energy efficiency class may, for example, become a D or E class after rescaling.

The new label has a simple A-G scale; the classes A+ to A+++ are being removed.

What is behind that decision? In the past, more and more products achieved ratings A+, A++ or A+++ (over 90%). A real differentiation was no longer given as it was intended by introducing the label twenty years ago. Therefore, the new scale A-G is stricter and designed in that way that very few products will achieve “A”. This is an incentive to develop even more energy efficient appliances.
