As World Refrigeration Day approaches, Ed Whinyates of Stonegrove Refrigeration backs the call to shout more about what we do.
When I am asked by someone outside of the refrigeration industry what I do for a living, one of the first things people say is “… so you sell fridges?” Like a tall person being asked “what’s the weather like up there?” I politely laugh along. However it has me thinking about the disservice to our industry. Modern living relies heavily on refrigeration; people wouldn’t question the important role of fridges, freezers and air conditioners. But refrigeration appears to be taken for granted and undervalued. The big question has to be why?
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.
