Cold chain specialist Frigolgix has joined the EU CryoHub project as an industrial partner and has agreed to become the site for the CryoHub technology demonstrator installation.
Prof Judith Evans, project manager, said: “Frigologix is an ideal partner for this project due to their commitment to constantly investigating new ways to optimise energy use in the cold chain.”
A significant number of European retail professionals who responded to a survey by Emerson said they were unaware of upcoming regulatory changes related to the phase down of HFCs as refrigerants.
The study showed that the retail industry was lagging behind schedule due to a lack of clarity in regulatory changes and replacement technologies available, with 40 per cent of respondents unaware of the changes and nearly half (44 per cent) either yet to make the shift, or unsure. However, 81 per cent of respondents viewed the shift from HFCs to natural refrigerants as a positive change.
