USA: CO2 refrigeration specialist Hillphoenix has earned the US Environmental Protection Agency’s GreenChill 2020-2021 Store Certification Excellence recognition for the 10th consecutive year.
This achievement recognises the commercial refrigeration systems manufacturer that has installed more advanced refrigeration systems in GreenChill-certified stores than any other Partner in the past year. Inclusive of the 2020-2021 cycle, Hillphoenix systems are installed in over 80% of the GreenChill certified stores.
Congratulating Hillphoenix on their success, Kirsten Cappel, GreenChill Programme manager said: “Their support of the supermarket industry to reduce harmful refrigeration emissions and transition to advanced refrigeration technologies is exemplary and good for both the environment and business.”
The GreenChill Programme is a voluntary partnership with food retailers, refrigeration system manufacturers, and chemical manufacturers to reduce refrigerant emissions and decrease their impact on the ozone later and climate change.
Hillphoenix first introduced its Second Nature systems, one of the first cooling technologies to reduce global-warming emissions, in the mid-90s. In the early 2000s, it had installed its first Second Nature low-temperature CO2 secondary system and CO2 cascade systems and in 2012, its first CO2 transcritical booster system.
