New York, N.Y., October 18, 2018 – Henningsen Cold Storage, at its Grandview, Wash.-based cold-storage warehouse, has installed one of the first industrial refrigeration systems in the U.S. that uses only carbon dioxide (CO2), a climate-friendly refrigerant, reports the October 2018 issue of Accelerate America, published online this week.

Hillsboro, Ore.-based Henningsen installed its first transcritical CO2 refrigeration in June, 2018, at its new Grandview cold-storage plant, and followed up in September with a second such system at an existing warehouse in Scranton, Pa. These systems represent a bold departure from Henningsen’s traditional ammonia systems, and will be evaluated for performance and reliability over the next year.
The October 2018 issue (volume 4, No. 39) also reports on: Target and Weis Market’s approach to refrigeration selection; Connecticut, New York and Maryland join California in regulating HFCs; and the evolution of CO2 as a refrigerant for car air-conditioning.
Also featured: EPA’s proposal to end leak-repair rules for HFCs; CO2 refrigeration news at the Food Marketing Institute’s Energy & Store Development Conference; Lidl’s EPA GreenChill award for self-contained propane cases; and how the HVAC&R industry can help meet climate deadlines set by the new IPCC report.
