The winners were recognized for advancing the adoption of natural refrigerant-based technologies in Europe through their innovations, installations and advocacy.
Carel’s ChillBooster turns air-cooled gas coolers into adiabatic units to counter high ambient temperatures.
In November 2018 Delhaize Serbia opened its first CO2 transcritical store, in the capital Belgrade. Accelerate Europe reports.
Supermarket giants Carrefour, METRO AG and Delhaize are demonstrating that CO2 transcritical refrigeration technology can help retailers to save energy costs and meet their corporate sustainability goals, heard participants in the 7th annual ATMOsphere Europe conference in Barcelona last month.
Whether it’s CO2 or hydrocarbons, Delhaize made its plans clear to introduce as many natural refrigerant solutions as possible and use ATMO Asia 2016 as a platform to learn from Japanese retailers, particularly CVS operators.
The Food Retailer Panel at ATMOsphere Europe 2015 gathered leading end users, amongst them Metro AG, the Delhaize Group, and Ahold, each of which has opted to invest in natural refrigerants for all new stores. With over 500 CO2 transcritical and hybrid installations between them, these retailers are convinced that CO2 is the best refrigerant solution for new stores and refurbishments.
