BITZER UK has supplied its 300th carbon dioxide-based refrigeration compressor for installation in Aldi UK’s stores.
The milestone was reached following a delivery of the manufacturer’s proven semi-hermetic CO2 units to Aldi's refrigeration pack builder, Clade Engineering Services, which works closely with installation sister company A1 Engineering Services on the retailer’s refrigeration systems.
Aldi committed to installing natural refrigerants across all of its stores more than a year ago and CO2 has a GWP of just one.
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).
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.
Dearman is working with Marks & Spencer as the retailer seeks to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from its chilled deliveries.
Dearman’s liquid nitrogen-powered engine is zero emission. The technology will replace diesel-powered secondary engines used to power transport refrigeration units (TRUs), which are used to keep food cold on the road.
