The Institute of Refrigeration is hosting a London TechTalk on sustainable refrigeration road transport and reducing the environmental impact of the cold chain on 7 March.
Dr Christina Francis from London South Bank University won the IOR’s Ted Perry award last year for her research into carbon emissions from Direct-Drive Last mile Refrigerated Vehicles and will talk about the research project and its impact for the future of the refrigerated road transport system in London.
From its location on the Cornish coast near Bude, The Beach Hotel can see at first-hand the damaging effects that technologies and plastics are having on our environment.
The hotel wanted to lead the way in the smaller commercial sector by using an environmentally friendly natural refrigerant for its food cold storage. After talking its plans through with contractor KJ Refrigeration, it chose to use CO2 (R744).
Toshiba Air Conditioning has published new information on its latest R32 refrigerant-based Mirai, Shorai and Daiseikai residential air conditioning systems, as well as the full range of Digital Inverter and Super Digital Inverter light commercial split system range.
Publication of the brochures follows the company’s move to R32 refrigerant, and set out the benefits for end users and the environment.
Carter Synergy has revealed details of what it believes was the world-first installation of a newly developed multi rotary compressor pack using CO2 at a trading store.
The pack at a Tesco Express store in Shaw, near Oldham, combines rotary compressors with Green & Cool’s control software to ensure reliability and efficiency.
