Net-Zero Transport Refrigeration

Transport refrigeration is an overlooked subsector urgently in need of innovation and policy support. Emissions from transport cooling systems can account for around 40 per cent of the vehicle’s total emissions, half of which is due to the direct emissions from the refrigerant. Despite the urgent need for net-zero products, availability is low. CO2 shows a lot of potential for widespread uptake in shipping. Truck and trailer net-zero systems using cryogenics are also showing promise however, the energy intensity of producing the liquid CO2 or nitrogen raises questions about their suitability as net-zero compatible products

Statement by Greencold: “We would be prepared to hire the trailer outside the UK for ‘price on application’ (POA) however it must be stated the trailer does not refrigerate whilst in transit but only when parked in static configuration.”, “From our facility in the UK we would be able to supply CO2 refrigerated trailers for sale built to the customers requirements, size, shelving or dual compartment function for example.”
