Natural refrigerants are already delivering efficient and sustainable cooling for industrial applications ranging from cold storage to food production across North America, heard participants in the ATMOsphere America conference in Chicago earlier this month.
Free cooling is just one of the many advantages of CO2 cooling units for server rooms, Carnot’s Marc-André Lesmerises told Accelerate America magazine in an exclusive interview.
Natural refrigerants – and particularly CO2 applications – are not just in fashion but here to stay, Marc-André Lesmerises, president of Carnot Refrigeration, told R744.com in an exclusive interview. The Canadian company is heading into 2016 with ambitious plans to launch CO2 projects in data centres and training sessions for contractors interested in natural refrigerant technologies.
Les Atokas Bieler, in collaboration with Carnot Refrigeration, opted for a CO2 transcritical technology to chill cranberries at its new refrigeration warehouse in Quebec, Canada.
Target, Whole Foods, Sobeys and Ahold USA will be among those offering insights on sustainable refrigeration and store energy savings amid a period of rapid transition in North America.
Natural refrigerants are creating new opportunities for data centre cooling as hyperscale data centres change the market for precision cooling.
As in previous years ATMOsphere America 2015, organised in Atlanta on 25-26 June, provided an opportunity to learn about the very latest technology developments. A series of technology case study sessions focused on industrial refrigeration, heat pumps, and new applications provided no shortage of evidence on the advantages of CO2 in applications beyond the world of commercial refrigeration.
Carnot has agreed to pay Cimco $1.8 million to settle patent infringement suits stemming from CO2 refrigeration systems Carnot built for Quebec ice rinks
In an exclusive interview published in Accelerate America issue #6, Joe Sanchez, application engineering manager at Bitzer, talks about the market opportunities for CO2 in North American supermarkets, food processing plants and ice rinks.
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.
