Emerson has opened an €8 million heating and cooling technology laboratory centre in Aachen, Germany to help meet increasingly demanding energy efficient requirements.
Swedish ACR firm, Beijer Ref, announced that it has won their first order for a transcritical carbon dioxide (CO2) cooling from a supermarket in New Zealand.
The order came via its subsidiary Patton and marks Beijer Ref's ambitions to be a leader when it comes to low-GWP refrigerants.
Italian company, SCM Frigo (owned by Beijer Ref), will make and install the CO2 rack for the retail chain in New Zealand. The innovative design is a so-called 'plug 'n play' system with an integrated gas cooler in the outdoor frame. That makes it easy and simple to install.
