Carnot Refrigeration joined the US Environmental Protection Agency’s GreenChill Partnership.
GreenChill emphasizes the adoption of greener refrigeration practices such as using environmentally friendlier refrigerants, reducing refrigerant equipment charge sizes, limiting leaks in refrigeration equipment and installing advanced refrigeration technologies. EPA’s GreenChill Partnership works with supermarkets to reduce refrigerant emissions and decrease their impact on the ozone layer and climate change.
Carnot worked with GreenChill to certify its CO2 supermarket refrigerant system at the Hannaford supermarket in Turner, Maine. The project received GreenChill’s 2013 Best of the Best award. Following this, Carnot decided to join the GreenChill Partnership, becoming the first Canadian manufacturer to be part of EPA’s GreenChill Partnership.
Carnot Refrigeration’s CO2 refrigeration system is also recognized by ASHRAE.
