Cryogenic applications: Spar Netherlands is implementing CO2 refrigerated transport units

The contract was awarded following a successful testing period during which Thermo Kingfs innovative CryoTech CO2 cooling units were tested for operational and environmental performance. Spar has already begun using the innovative technology and expects that by 2012, 80% and by 2015 100% of its trailers will have adopted CryoTech refrigeration technology. The ground-breaking CryoTech CT-15 cryogenic trailer units use recycled liquid CO2 as a coolant in an open loop system to achieve a significant reduction in emissions and improved performance compared to diesel. The new units will achieve savings of 160@000 l of diesel per year, i.e. a CO2 emissions reduction of about 427@000 kg (equivalent to the emissions of 90 cars).
