SCM Frigo sends first CO2 system to China

“We are proud to be selected as partner to Metro – a retail chain with significant size and influence on the market – in its strive implement eco-friendly refrigerants. We work continuously to be able to offer the most efficient and green alternatives, and look forward to the installation taking place later this year”, Bertland added.
