DTI at Gustav Lorentzen 2014: can ice storage and Vortex Flow Sensors improve CO2 system efficiency?

The Danish Technological Institute (DTI) presented two papers on topics related to CO2 refrigeration systems at the 2014 Gustav Lorentzen Conference on Natural Refrigerants held in China from 31 August – 2 September. In the first presentation, ice storage for a transcritical refrigeration system is suggested in order to achieve greater energy savings in warmer climates, and flexible power consumption.

DUH calls for swift switch to CO2 MAC technology in buses

The need to switch to environmentally friendly and safe refrigerants in mobile air conditioning systems (MAC) doesn’t stop at passenger vehicles, which have received considerable attention in recent months due to the controversy surrounding refrigerant R1234yf. The German Environmental Aid Association is now calling on transport companies and bus manufacturers to make the switch to CO2 MAC systems.
