In June 2015 Frialsa opened a new facility. The company had a long history using ammonia since its inception in 1983, but in 2010 decided to work with CO2 as well.
Finalised a few months ago, Barajas became the first of 37 Makro stores in Spain (Madrid) equipped with a refrigeration system using only CO2 as a refrigerant.
Hillphoneix, Carnot Refrigeration, Sanden, Bitzer US, KAV Consulting and Carter Synergy will be some of the companies presenting their latest CO2 based projects at the 4th edition of ATMOsphere America. These case studies will highlight innovation and efficiency in commercial and industrial refrigeration applications, heat pumps and data centers.
“Refrigeration systems need to be adapted to each country to guarantee maximum efficiency,” says Tewis
Alfonso Olcina from Spanish company Tewis gave R744.com an exclusive interview, and insights into the potential use of natural refrigerants for commercial applications in warm countries such as Spain. Olcina also discussed the company’s current and future projects for Southern and Eastern Europe, and Central and Latin America.
The Hotel Technological Institute (ITH) in Spain has launched a new project with the aim of promoting the use of CO2 as a refrigerant. Thanks to Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) Q-Ton heat pump systems, which use climate-friendly CO2 as a refrigerant, hotels can increase energy savings and guarantee maximum performance while reducing their CO2 emissions.
Efficient CO2 refrigerant solutions for warm ambient temperatures was a key topic of discussion at the Gustav Lorentzen 2014 (GL 2014) Conference on Natural refrigerants, which took place from 31 August to 2 September 2014 in Hangzhou, China. R744.com, a silver sponsor of GL 2014 together with market development company shecco, reports on the latest technological developments and research into expanding the use of CO2 transcritical to southern climates, which represent a si
