Accelerate Corporate combines expert research, end-user interviews and trend analysis on climate-friendly HVAC&R technologies. The first edition, published in May, zooms in on NH3/CO2 systems for industrial refrigeration.
Driven by regulatory and technology change, reducing ammonia charges while simultaneously increasing energy efficiency now hold the key to unlocking the full potential of HFC-free systems around the world. The range of cutting-edge technologies delivering on this promise is wide, from low-charge ammonia systems and ammonia/CO2 cascade and secondary systems to CO2 transcritical systems and, to a smaller extent, systems using hydrocarbons and air.
The first-ever special edition Accelerate Corporate – ‘Next-generation Industrial Refrigeration – from Japan to the World’ – sheds light on the new generation of low-charge, high-efficiency NH3/CO2 secondary systems challenging traditional ammonia systems. Japanese group Mayekawa, whose system reduces the ammonia refrigerant charge to just 25kg from an original 300-400kg, outlines its five-year global strategy and highlights best-practice installations of its NewTon technology in Japan and South-East Asia.
Showcasing success stories
Japanese firm Nissui Logistics – which provides refrigerated warehousing, storage and freight transportation services – predominantly processes salmon imported from places like Chile. It has installed three New Tons – Mayekawa’s market-leading ammonia/CO2 system – in distribution centres in Japan.
Patine Leisure, meanwhile, has installed ammonia/CO2 ice rinks across the country. And food producer NittoBest uses NH3/CO2 refrigeration systems in its production facilities.
Read about all this, and more, in the first edition of Accelerate Corporate. The first edition also features the following content:
- Market trends: global drive towards next-generation industrial refrigeration in Japan, Europe, North America, China and Australia.
- Ecosystems: infographics showing the broad application range for ammonia, carbon dioxide, hydrocarbons, water and air refrigerant-based refrigeration solutions.
- Policy trends: overview of legislative initiatives, including bans to restrict f-gas-based refrigeration systems and financial incentive schemes to help end-users shift to natural refrigerant-based technology in Japan and the world.
- Supplier’s Vision: feature interview with Mayekawa president Tadashi Maekawa about the company’s ‘Natural Five’ HFC-free strategy, ambitious sales targets for 2020, and global leadership for industrial HVAC&R applications.
