Food Retail Best Practices
Accelerate #111 is a Special Issue with a focus on how food retailers around the world are leveraging future-proof natural refrigerant solutions. In 26 case studies encompassing 46 stores, the issue gives best-practice examples of transcritical CO2, hydrocarbon and ammonia/CO2 installations. Some of the retailers profiled have taken transcritical CO2 to the next level of sustainability by incorporating them in integrated systems that also include heating and air conditioning. Other stores have made transcritical CO2 part of a strategy to reach net-zero carbon emissions. And one store shows how a transcritical CO2 system can be leased instead of bought.
