Special issue looks at how organizations around the world use climate-friendly natural refrigerants – carbon dioxide, hydrocarbons and ammonia – and other sustainable technologies.
Brussels, Belgium (October 20, 2020) – The new Special Issue of Accelerate (#111) now available online, focuses on how food retailers around the world are leveraging future-proof natural refrigeration solutions.
In 26 case studies encompassing 46 stores, the issue gives best-practice examples of transcritical CO2, hydrocarbon and ammonia/CO2 refrigeration installations. Some of the retailers profiled have taken transcritical CO2 to the next level of sustainability by incorporating them in integrated systems that also include heating and air conditioning. Other stores have made transcritical CO2 part of a strategy to reach net-zero carbon emissions. And one store shows how a transcritical CO2 system can be leased instead of bought.
Accelerate is the first news publication written for and about the most progressive business leaders working with climate-friendly natural refrigerants and other sustainable cooling technologies throughout the world. It builds on the legacies of Accelerate Magazine and six regional magazines, Accelerate America, Accelerate Europe Accelerate Australia & New Zealand, Accelerate China, Accelerate Asia and Accelerate Japan.
