Cryogenic applications: Spar Netherlands is implementing CO2 refrigerated transport units
The contract was awarded following a successful testing period during which Thermo Kingfs 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).
